Flash-flood watch in effect

LIHU‘E — A flash-flood watch is in effect for Kaua‘i, Ni‘ihau and O‘ahu now through late tonight, according to the National Weather Service.

Heavy rain and thunderstorms are possible.

East-southeast winds will focus rainfall over windward slopes as well as urban areas along the south shores. Do not cross fast-flowing water in your vehicle or on foot. Monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action if a flash-flood warning is issued.

Those experiencing heavy rain or rising water should head to higher ground immediately.
