Flash flood watch now in effect through Friday afternoon

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The flash flood watch is now in effect for all Hawaiian Islands through Friday afternoon.

Low pressure west of the state will continue moving slowly west-southwest. The atmosphere over Hawaii will remain unstable enough for the possibility of heavy showers and thunderstorms overnight and Friday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions:

A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Prepare now for the possibility of very heavy rainfall that could cause flash flooding.

Campers and hikers should pay particular attention to later forecasts. Stay away from creeks, streams and other flood prone areas. Remember that it does not have to be raining where you are for flash flooding to occur.
