...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM NOON HST TODAY
THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON...
The Flash Flood Watch continues for
* Maui and the Big Island.
* From noon HST today through Monday afternoon
* Abundant low level moisture will remain over the eastern end
of the island chain. As a strong upper level trough moves
overhead on Saturday, heavy showers and thunderstorms will
likely develop. The threat for flooding rainfall may spread
westward to the rest of the state by Sunday.
* Due to high instability and light winds, heavy showers and
thunderstorms will likely develop rapidly during the afternoon
hours. Soils across much of the Big Island and parts of Maui
are already saturated due to recent rains, which could lead to
the faster onset of flash flooding.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a dangerous situation.
Please monitor forecasts and be prepared to take action should
Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
