Unsettled weather is likely for much of this week as showers are forecast to increase in coverage and intensity for the next 12 to 18 hours. Locally heavy rainfall is possible through at least Wednesday. A Flash Flood Watch is currently posted for the Big Island but is likely to be expanded to parts of Maui County as the weather situation begins to unfold.
