The threat of heavy showers and thunderstorms remains for the islands within Maui County as a band of deep moisture approaches from the southeast, according to a National Weather Service forecast.

The agency issued a flood watch for Maui, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, and Oʻahu, that will remain in effect through 6 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 15.

“The highest chance for flooding rains will be from Maui County to Oʻahu today. The system will be weakening as it moves near Kauaʻi on Friday. Drier weather is expected for the weekend,” the NWS stated.

Earlier this morning, at around 6:15 a.m., the NWS reported an area of thunderstorms moving over West Molokaʻi. The system carried wind gusts of up to 40 mph, and very heavy rain that moved across the area through 6:45 a.m.
