The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for Kahoolawe, Lanai, Maui, Molokai, Oahu
  and the Big Island.

  moving down the island chain could result in flash flooding
  Monday through Tuesday. The latest guidance indicates the
  greatest potential for flooding will occur over Oahu, Maui
  County and the Big Island.

* Heavy rain could become widespread and cause streams to quickly
  overflow their banks, leading to life threatening flash
  flooding.

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

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
