The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a

* until 300 am HST

* at 1155 PM HST... radar showed moderate to heavy showers over
Kauai... from Waimea to Barking Sands to the Na Pali coast to
Hanalei to Kapahi. Rain is especially heavy over the north
facing slopes and over interior Kauai... and over four inches of
rain has been recorded by a rain gage near kokee tonight. Steady
rainfall is expected to continue... and water levels in area
streams will continue to rise.

* Other locations in the advisory include but are not limited to
Kekaha... Mana... polihale... Waimea Canyon... the Na Pali State
Park... including Hanakapiai... Hanakoa and Kalalau valleys...
Haena... Wainiha and Hanalei.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Stay away from streams... drainage ditches and low lying areas prone
to flooding.

Rainfall and runoff will also cause hazardous driving conditions due
to ponding... reduced visibility and poor braking action.

Do not cross fast flowing or rising water in your vehicle or on foot.
Turn around... Don/T drown.


This Flood Advisory replaces the previously issued advisory that was
in effect for portions of the island of Kauai in Kauai County... and
may need to be extended beyond 300 am HST if heavy rain persists.

... High surf warning remains in effect until 6 am HST Tuesday...

A high surf warning remains in effect until 6 am HST Tuesday.

* Surf... along north and west facing shores of Niihau and Kauai
and north facing shores of Oahu... Molokai and Maui... peaking at
25 to 30 feet. Along west facing shores of Oahu and Molokai...
peaking at 15 to 20 feet. Along west facing shores of The Big
Island... peaking at heights of 8 to 12 feet.

* Timing... peaking tonight and Monday... and then gradually
diminishing through Tuesday.

* Impacts... high... expect ocean water occasionally sweeping across
portions of beaches... especially during high tide... which will
occur early Monday morning. Also expect very strong breaking
waves and strong currents. Breaking waves may occasionally
impact harbors exposed to the swell... making navigating The
Harbor channel dangerous.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Stay out of the water and well away from the shoreline along the
affected coasts. Inexperienced persons should remain off beaches
and adjacent beachfront areas. Large breaking surf... significant
shorebreak... and dangerous currents make entering the water very
hazardous. Anyone entering the water could face significant injury
or death.
