The National Weather Service has extended a FLASH FLOOD WATCH again, this time until late Tuesday night for all of the Hawaiian Islands. The wet weather is the result of a moist and unstable atmosphere that remains over the state. Forecasters say moderate to heavy showers falling on already wet ground may cause flash flooding conditions.

The FLASH FLOOD WATCH for Maui County has been extended overnight.  It is expected to expire at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Forecasters say conditions may still develop that lead to flash flooding. According to the National Weather Service, heavy showers will maintain a risk for flash flooding through early Tuesday morning.


The wet weather is the result of a very moist air mass that remains over the state.
