Wind Advisory Extended for Big Island Summits
The National Weather Service extended a wind advisory for Big Island summits until 6 a.m. Friday.
West winds are expected to blow 35 to 50 mph tonight into tomorrow. Winds this strong can make driving and walking difficult. The winds can forcefully open doors and damage hinges or slam doors shut, possibly causing injuries.
Consider postponing travel to the summits until conditions improve. If you must travel to the summits, use extra caution walking and driving. Be careful opening or closing doors.
