More wet weather anticipated after snow blankets Big Island summits
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -More wet weather is expected overnight with a chance of heavier showers for Maui County and the Big Island of Hawaii.
A Flash Flood Watch is posted for those islands until noon Thursday.
Portions of the Big Island are also under a Flood Advisory until 7:30 p.m. Radar showed a nearly stationary area of heavy rain near Kamuela. Other areas in the advisory include but are not limited to Waipio Valley, Upolu Airport, Hawi, Mahukona and Honokaa.
The wet weather is being caused by an upper level disturbance that's parked just to the southwest of the Big Island. It will keep wet weather around until around midday Thursday for Maui County and the Big Island, with the heaviest rainfall expected in windward areas.
Oahu is on the fringes of the system but could see some scattered showers from it. Kauai will be left mostly dry.
The system earlier left a blanket of snow atop Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. Light snow accumulations and flurries are forecast for the summits tonight, but no winter storm watches or warnings are posted at the current time.
