The National Weather Service has CONTINUED a FLASH FLOOD WATCH for Maui County, in effect through 6:00 p.m. Monday.
EFFECTS: Atmospheric conditions continue to be favorable for locally heavy rain to develop due to presence of an upper level trough near the islands and ample tropical moister. The potential for flash flooding remains elevated.
Although rainfall totals will likely remain highest over windward and mauka areas, the threat for flooding persists over all parts of the state.
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 NEED TO BE RAINING WHERE YOU ARE FOR FLASH FLOODING TO OCCUR. AVOID CAMPING OR HIKING NEAR STREAMS AND LOW-LYING FLOOD-PRONE AREAS.
