The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch and Flash Flood Watch update on Monday, May 1, at 7:45 a.m.

The NWS has extended the Winter Storm Watch for the summits of Hawai‘i Island through today.

In addition, a Flash Flood Watch for Hawai‘i Island remains in effect through today.

A Flash Flood Watch means flash flooding is possible, but not imminent.

Although there are no road closures at this time, conditions may change without notice.


Heavy showers and thunderstorms may cause flooding. Be aware of debris, runoff, and ponding of water. Do not cross moving water on roadways, turn around don’t drown. If lightning threatens your area, power outages may occur—the safest place to be is indoors.
