A flash flood watch continues for Maui and the Big Island of Hawaiʻi from this morning through Saturday night.

The National Weather Service says an unstable airmass will move over the islands today into the weekend, bringing an increase in showers across the eastern islands. According to the NWS forecast, “While showers will be possible over most areas, the areas most susceptible to flooding will be windward locations which have already received rain this week.”

The NWS advises: The extended period of rain could cause flooding in low spots which could make some roadways impassable. Debris in streams and gulches may clog bridges and culverts. Strong winds may cause tree branches to fall which will potentially add to the amount of debris.

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