The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Maui, Molokaʻi, and Lānaʻi, in effect until late tonight.

A cold front and upper level trough are moving into the western islands.

Southerly wind flow over the eastern half of the state will bring up additional tropical moisture, and slow moving heavy shower bands across the region will elevate the threat for flash flooding.

The public is asked to monitor forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash flood warnings be issued.

A Flood Watch means that conditions are favorable for flash flooding. Motorists and pedestrians are reminded not to cross fast flowing water in their vehicle or on foot.
