Approaching heavy rains have prompted the National Weather Service to issue a flash flood watch for the islands of Kauai and Oahu.
Forecasters say an approaching cold front will bring increasing showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms for Kauai and Oahu beginning Friday afternoon through Sunday morning.
As a precaution, the Department of Land and Natural Resources has closed Kalalau Trail on Kauai to hikers.
In March, more than a dozen hikers had to be rescued from the trail after heavy rains flooded the Hanakapiai Stream, making it dangerous to cross. In February, a New York woman died attempting to cross the stream.
State Parks personnel will evaluate the weather conditions Saturday morning to decide whether to reopen the trail.
The flash flood watch will be in effect until 6 a.m. Sunday.
