Flash Flood Watch, High Surf Warning
Issued: 6:05 PM HST Jul. 23, 2016 – National Weather Service

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

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

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

* through Sunday afternoon.

* Passing rainbands will bring periods of showers. There is a
chance for intense downpours or thunderstorms to develop
tonight... mainly near The Big Island... spreading to Maui County
late tonight. If heavier storms develop... they could cause
significant flash flooding. Storm total rainfall amounts of 8 to
12 inches... with isolated amounts up to 15 inches in higher
terrain... are possible.

* In addition to flood prone areas... heavy rain events of this
size may cause flooding in areas outside designated flood zones. Low
spots in roads can become dangerous and impassable due to severe
runoff. High amounts of debris in streams and gulches may clog
bridges and culverts resulting in dangerous flooding which could
occur outside the normal channels... and could also lead to
significant property damage.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is very dangerous.

You should monitor later forecasts and get prepared for flash
flooding this weekend. Never drive into areas where water covers
the Road. Turn around... Don/T drown.





408 PM HST Sat Jul 23 2016

* surf... 15 to 20 feet tonight... lowering to 10 to 15 feet Sunday.

* Timing... through 6 PM HST Sunday.

* Impacts... very high... expect ocean water surging and sweeping
across beaches... coastal benches... and lava flows creating the
potential for impacts to coastal properties and
infrastructure... including roadways. Powerful longshore and
rip currents will be present at most beaches. Large breaking
waves and strong currents may impact Harbor entrances and
channels causing challenging boat handling.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Large breaking surf... significant shorebreak... and dangerous
currents make entering the water very hazardous. Anyone entering
the water could face significant injury or death.
