The National Weather Service in Honolulu issued a Flash Flood Watch for all islands through Wednesday March 8.

An upper level trough will strengthen as it digs toward the islands during the next couple of days.

While isolated heavy showers could develop over all islands, the main threat for heavy showers and thunderstorms will be along a band of moisture currently stalled over the northern Big Island and Maui.

This band may drift northward on Wednesday night.

Heavy downpours could cause streams to quickly overflow their banks, leading to life threatening flash flooding.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

Please monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
