Flossie now a tropical depression

Published On: Jul 29 2013 07:25:00 PM HST

Forecasters at the Central Pacific Hurricane Center says Flossie is now a tropical depression.

All tropical storm warnings have been discontinued at of 5 p.m.

A statewide flash flood watch is still in effect and a flash flood warning was issued for the island of Maui until 8:15 p.m.

In its 5 p.m. Monday advisory, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu said the tropical storm was 90 miles east of Honolulu moving west-northwest at 18 mph.  In its present track, Flossie is forecast to move north of Maui.

Maximum sustained winds decreased to 35 mph.  But, we should still be prepared for rain.

"In the past, weakening tropical cyclones with that track have brought Hawaii damage from flooding rain and high surf to east and southeast shores, so it's always a good idea to be prepared," said KITV4 chief meteorologist Justin Fujioka.

The flash flood watch for all Hawaiian islands will be in effect from 6 a.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Wednesday.  A flash flood watch means conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding.

Flossie is expected to produce rainfall amounts of 2-to-4 inches over the Big Island with isolated amounts of up to 6 inches.  Over the rest of the state, total rainfall amounts will be 1-to-2-inches with isolated amounts up to 6 inches.

The Hawaii Tourism Authority says some airlines have been announcing flight adjustments.  You will need to contact your airline and hotel to confirm your travel plans.
