The Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for all Hawaiian Islands through this afternoon.

Flash flooding potential will remain high due to a combination of an upper disturbance over the region and plenty of lingering moisture and instability.

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.
