Flash flood watch in effect for Hawaii through Sunday

The state of Hawaii is under a flash flood watch that has been extended through Sunday afternoon, according to a report from the National Weather Service Thursday. 

The watch is in effect for all Hawaiian islands. According to the report, the low and deep moisture will continue to cause areas of heavy showers and thunderstorms. 

The flash flood threat will be highest over the Big Island, but will spread to the other islands later today, then through the weekend. 

Rainfall rates from heavier downpours and thunderstorms could cause streams to overflow over banks, leading to flash floods, according to the report. 

The NWS advises the public to monitor forecasts and prepare to take action should conditions worsen. 

Campers and hikers should consider postponing outings until weather conditions improve, according to the report.
