Flash flood dropped for entire state as skies slowly clear

Flash flood warning issued for Oahu

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The flash flood watch once posted for the state has been canceled.

Forecasters canceled the watch around 3:30 Saturday afternoon as skies began to clear up.

The watch was originally slated to last into the evening as unstable conditions moved over the island chain.

“An area of very moist air has spread over the islands and a trough aloft is making the atmosphere unstable. The combination of deep moisture and instability may bring periods of heavy rains with elevated chances for flooding from Molokai to the Big Island,” forecasters said earlier in the day.

The chance of instability could linger however, bringing pop-up isolated showers.
