persists.

... Flash Flood Watch now in effect through Sunday afternoon...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* Kahoolawe, Lanai, Maui, Molokai, Oahu and The Big Island.

* Through Sunday afternoon

* 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

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, especially in Maui
County this weekend. Rain will affect windward areas, while
also 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.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
