Flood Watch Still Posted, Muggy Weather Continues
By Meteorologist Malika Dudley / Email: [email protected]
A Flood Watch remains in effect until 6 p.m. Tuesday for all islands. An unstable and very moist air mass on the back side of the tropical system is lingering across the state. This moisture interacting with the land is expected to produce periods of heavy rain and slow-moving downpours that could lead to flash flooding. If that occurs a more urgent Flood Advisory (flooding is imminent) or Flood Warning (flooding is occurring) will be posted by the National Weather Service.

Extremely humid conditions will keep showers heavier than usual over the islands through most of the week. Light winds will yield to modest trade winds by the weekend, and they may start to bring in drier air, but unsettled conditions appear likely to return by early next week.
It’s going to be another muggy day. Today we expect partly to mostly cloudy skies. Showers, thunderstorms and locally heavy rainfall are possible. High temperatures from 87° to 92° are expected but will likely feel warmer than the thermometer indicates. Variable winds from 5 to 15 mph are forecasted.
UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)
Light and variable winds are expected this evening. Low temperatures from 74° to 79°. Scattered showers and partly to mostly cloudy skies. Locally heavy rainfall is possible.
