... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday afternoon...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Kahoolawe, Lanai, Maui, Molokai, Oahu and The Big Island.

* Through Sunday afternoon

* a Kona low passing near the islands will bring the continued
threat of flash-flooding to most of the Hawaiian islands. While
the islands of Maui County are most likely to receive heavy rain
in the short term, moisture is expected to spread to The Big
Island and Oahu over the next day or so, increasing the
potential for flash flood-producing rainfall rates.

* Heavy rain is expected to be widespread, especially in Maui
County. Rain will not only affect windward areas, but will also
impact urban and leeward areas which are more susceptible to
flooding problems, especially in south and west Maui. These
areas include Kihei, Lahaina, Kaanapali, and low-water
crossings along piilani Highway between Kaupo and Ulupalakua.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
