A Flood Watch goes into effect at 6 p.m. for Maui and continued through late Friday night. The wet weather is the result of an unstable air mass coupled with low level moisture. Forecasters say that combination increases the potential for flooding, locally heavy rain fall and thunderstorms, starting this evening.
