The National Weather Service in Honolulu said just after 8 a.m., radar showed an area of heavy rain had moved southwest into the lower sections of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Forecasters warned that unsafe flash flooding is still possible.

The trade winds will keep the heaviest showers focused on windward and mauka areas of the smaller islands, but the trade winds will be strong enough to push some of those showers leeward.

A warning would mean that flooding is happening or imminent and residents in areas prone to floods should get to high ground immediately. Monitor and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued on Sunday.
