HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A flood advisory for southwest area of east Maui has been allowed to expire after heavy rains diminished.

Earlier Wednesday afternon, rain was falling at a rate of one to two inches per hour in the Wailea-Makena area, causing minor flooding.

Trade winds have become lighter, with afternoon sea breezes developing for leeward areas of the islands, resulting in some pop-up showers, especially for Maui and Hawaii island. Those showers should diminish during the evening.

This weather pattern is expected to continue through Friday. Trade winds are expected to return over the weekend.
