HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Kahoolawe, Lanai, Maui, Molokai and Oahu.

A slow-moving front will pass over Oahu and Maui County through tonight.

The front will combine with a vigorous upper trough to bring the threat of widespread heavy rain that could result in flash flooding. The primary threat on Oahu will be through this evening, with the threat of heavy rain persisting through early Monday over Maui County.

The rain will be widespread, and will affect both the upper and lower elevations. The heavy rain will also fall over urban areas in the lower elevations, which will be more susceptible to flooding problems.
