Flash Flood Watch Continued Through Late Tonight
A Flash Flood Watch has been continued for Maui County, in effect through late tonight.
Forecasters with the National Weather Service say deep tropical moisture along with a strong upper level trough is expected to produce heavy rainfall and possible flash flooding.
The NWS says the most intense rainfall and highest risk for flash flooding will be from Kauaʻi to Maui County today. “Heavy rainfall could result in low spots in roads becoming dangerous and impassible due to severe runoff. Debris in streams and gulches could clog bridges and culverts resulting in dangerous flooding. Isolated landslides could also occur,” according to the latest notification.
Campers and hikers are advised to reschedule their outing to a time when weather is expected to be more favorable. The public is reminded that it does not have to be raining heavily where you are for flash flooding to occur.
