* Through this afternoon

* Deep moisture within an unstable easterly flow will produce
elevated threats for flash flooding today. While the primary flood
threat will be over windward and mountain slopes, all areas of the
state may experience flash flooding.

elevated runoff and overflowing streams. Urban areas may receive
