A front will stall over the area at the same time a potent low aloft moves overhead, bringing slow-moving heavy showers and thunderstorms that could result in flash-flooding. While forecast models currently indicate the greatest threat for flooding will occur over Maui county, Oahu and the Big Island also have the potential to receive flooding rain.
Heavy rain is expected to be widespread in Maui County, impacting urban and leeward areas, which are more susceptible to flooding problems, especially in south and west Maui. These areas include Kihei, Lahaina, Kaanapali, and low-water crossings along Piilani Highway between Kaupo and Ulupalakua.
The National Weather Service has ISSUED a FLASH FLOOD WATCH for MAUI COUNTY, in effect from Saturday Morning until Sunday afternoon.Follow @mauiwatch
