WEATHER

ACTIVE ALERT
Hydrologic Outlook issued January 23 at 5:08PM HST by NWS Honolulu HI
The combination of deep tropical moisture and a disturbance aloft, could bring periods of heavy rainfall to the state Sunday night through Wednesday. Heavy rainfall could reach the Big Island as early as Sunday night, potentially spread to smaller islands on Monday, with the unsettled weather possibly lingering through the middle of the week. Although many places are expected to receive rain, possibly heavy at times, the heaviest rainfall could very well pass by just to the south of the state. If it becomes more clear that heavy rainfall and flash flooding could impact portions or all of the state, a Flash Flood Watch may eventually be required. Keep up to date with the latest forecast information through the Internet (weather.gov/hawaii), local media, social media, or NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts. An updated Hydrologic Outlook will be issued by 6 AM HST Sunday, if necessary.
