The National Weather Service has continued a Flash Flood Watch for Maui County, in effect now through 6:00 p.m. Monday.
EFFECTS: Deep tropical moisture moving over the smaller islands overnight from the southeast will bring locally heavy rain and the chance for thunderstorms. Showers and locally heavy rain is expected to persist through Monday, and with it the chance for flooding.
Although rainfall totals will likely be highest over windward and mauka areas, the threat for flooding exists over all parts of the islands.
PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES: A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP THAT LEAD TO FLASH FLOODING. FLASH FLOODING IS VERY DANGEROUS. REMEMBER THAT IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE RAINING HEAVILY WHERE YOU ARE FOR FLASH FLOODING TO OCCUR. AVOID CAMPING OR HIKING NEAR STREAMS AND LOW LYING FLOOD PRONE AREAS.
