just a little wet this week

Rain sets records on Kauai

The seven-day totals show Hanalei got the most rain — nearly 46-inches. Kapahi, above Kapaa, recorded nearly 32.7 inches. Both areas saw more rain than Mt. Waialeale, which got 31.3 inches.

Most rain fell on the north and east sides of the island. The Wailua Ditch got 28.2 inches; Kilohana recorded 26.9 inches; Anahola got 20.5 inches and one Lihue Gage saw 20.5 inches.

Oahu’s seven-day rain totals were also impressive. The Oahu Forest National Wildlife Refuge in the northern Koolaus recorded 39.7 inches. The Moanalua USGS Gage saw 36.4 inches and Punaluu Stream got nearly 31.5 inches.

The Wilson Tunnel gage recorded 25 inches; Ahuimanu got nearly 18.6 inches; and Niu Valley saw 13.1 inches.


And my favorite screen-grab from the National Weather Service WFO Honolulu:

If you look at the bottom, it says: “The UVI for noon, March 9 in Honolulu is 6.  This is  a high exposure level.” 

Meaning: put sunscreen on before walking around in the rain.
