Maui County has issued a 24 hour flash flood watch starting later today at 6:00 pm. Deep tropical moisture is expected to cause heavy rain and thunderstorms. The flood watch will last through tomorrow at 6:00pm.
Although Haleakala National Park reopened, the severe weather conditions are expected to continue for the early portion of this week. Weather is expected to show improvement hopefully starting on Wednesday.
Beachgoers and swimmers should be cautious. Large waves and strong currents are expected.
