The National Weather Service has extended the Flash Flood WATCH for Maui County and the rest of the state through Friday morning, February 25, 2011.

The wet weather and unstable conditions are associated with an upper level low pressure system lingering over the islands.  Forecasters say the air mass may bring the possibility of heavy rainfall and a slight chance of thunderstorms.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding.  As a precaution, motorists are reminded to drive with caution during heavy rain.  Rainfall and runoff can cause hazardous driving conditions due to ponding, reduced visibility and poor braking action.  Motorists and pedestrians should not cross fast flowing or rising water in their vehicle or on foot.
