The National Weather Service in Honolulu has extended the flood advisory for the Big Island until 2:15 a.m. Sunday (Oct 27).

At 11:06 p.m. weather radar showed heavy rain near Pahoa. This area of heavy rain was nearly stationary.

Other locations in the advisory include, but are not limited to: Mountain View, Keaau, Kapoho, Hawaiian Paradise Park, Hawaiian Beaches and Glenwood.

If thunderstorms occur…seek shelter to protect yourself from lightning. If funnel clouds extend to the ground…they can produce dangerous winds. remain alert for changing weather conditions and stay tuned to NOAA weather radio…or local media sources for further information.

Despite these conditions the National Weather Service noted a record high temperature of 87 degrees set in Hilo for Saturday (Oct 26). This temperature breaks the old record of 86 degrees set in 2012.
