Wet weather to continue this week and into the weekend with storms possible

From downed trees to flash flooding, the weather was wet and blustery this weekend.

Conditions could last for another week, with the possibility of heavy rain next weekend as well.

A disturbance to the north will draw moisture up from the south, bringing lots of trade showers, heavy at times, and a chance of thunderstorms.

A flash flood watch is currently in effect for Maui and Hawaii island through Tuesday afternoon. The watch could be expanded as needed.

Hawaii island is closest to the moisture, with Laupahoehoe recording six inches of rain Monday.

The island’s summits are also under a winter storm warning with heavy snow. Total accumulations of four to eight inches are expected through Tuesday.

Rain may also mix with the snow in between bursts of heavier snow showers.
