Flash flood watch lifted for state

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:24 p.m. HST, Apr 08, 2011


The National Weather Service lifted a statewide flood watch.

A flood advisory for Maui County was allowed to expire at 7 p.m. today.

Weather radar had showed moderate to heavy showers persisting along the east and southeast slopes of Haleakala this afternoon.

Forecasters say heavy showers did not develop over any of the other islands this afternoon.

A low pressure system southwest of Kauai that had been helping to bring up moist air from the southeast has weakened and moved west, taking away the immediate threat of scattered thunderstorms and heavy rain that had been persisting over the state for the last few days.

But forecasters say don't put the umbrellas away just yet. Lighter rain showers, especially in windward and mauka areas, are expected to continue through Saturday, and another system moving toward the islands from the west could bring more rain to Hawaii by the middle of next week.
