The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for the Big Island of Hawaiʻi and Maui County from Monday night through 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Forecasters with the NWS say “a band of deep moisture will move over the eastern half of the state and stall through Tuesday. Convective showers within this band will likely trigger heavy rainfall and thunderstorms over the Big Island and Maui County. This band is expected to move eastward Tuesday night and Wednesday, though this Flash Flood Watch may need to be extended if heavy rains linger.”

The public is reminded not to cross fast flowing water in their vehicle or on foot.
