(KHNL) -- Wednesday morning's heavy rains made for a slow start to the day on Oahu and Kauai.

On Oahu, the wet roads and showers slowed traffic on the H-1 freeway for both westbound and eastbound drivers.

The usual wetter windward and mountains areas got rain.

But because the moisture was coming up from the southerly direction, southern spots, like along Kalanianeole Highway had ponding of water on the road.

And the unsettled weather and thunderstorms flaring up forced the closure of Kuhio Highway on Kauai. As rising waters shut down the Hanalei Bridge briefly Wednesday morning.
