Snow in Hawaii 2014: Blizzard Warning for Mountain Summits

By    |   Friday, 26 Dec 2014 04:58 AM

Up to 8 inches of snow could accumulate at elevations above 11,500 feet on the Big Island of Hawaii, according to the National Weather Service.

A blizzard warning is in effect for the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, the Associated Press reported.

The weather service warned of strong winds, bitter cold, blowing and drifting snow, and lightning. Temperatures in the upper 20s and lower 30s were expected, as are 45 to 65 mph winds with gusts over 90 mph, leading to whiteout conditions.

Travel will be dangerous, and the weather service said to only travel with a winter survival kit.

Snow on the mountains is common, but a blizzard is unusual.
