Alert:
...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON... The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Maui and the Big Island.

* Through Sunday afternoon

* A persistent trough aloft will bring the potential for a prolonged period of rainfall to windward portions of Maui and the Big Island. Increasing ground saturation from repeated heavy rain bands will produce an increasing threat for flash flooding through the weekend.

A Flash Flood Watch means heavy rain leading to flash flooding is possible.

Warning Instruction:
Be prepared to take action if a Flash Flood Warning is issued. If you experience heavy rain or rising waters, head to higher ground immediately. A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions are favorable for flash flooding. Flash Flooding is LIFE THREATENING. Do not cross fast flowing water in your vehicle or on foot.

Unmonitored lands and waters in the impact area described in the alert will also be impacted.

If conditions change before expiration or the event needs to be extended, an update or cancellation will be issued from Hawaii Beach Safety Website.
