The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a winter weather advisory until 6 a.m. Wednesday, May 4, for Big Island summits.

Additional snow accumulations of up to 1 inch and possible freezing rain, with ice accumulation of less than one-quarter inch are possible atop Maunakea and Mauna Loa.

The advisory said that dangerously slick roadways and near-zero visibility are possible, with the road to the summit of Maunakea closed.

“A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties,” said the advisory. “Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving.”
