The National Weather Service on Sunday issued a flash flood watch for the island of Oahu, Maui County and the Big Island that began this morning and lasting through Tuesday afternoon.

A flash flood watch means that weather conditions may develop and could lead to a flash flood warning.

Heavy showers associated with an upper trough and cold front moving down the islands could result in flooding with the greatest potential for rain over Oahu, Maui County and the Big Island.

The public is urged to continue to monitor the latest forecasts and be prepared should a flash flood warning be issued.
