The National Weather Service has extended its wind advisory for Big Island summits until 6 a.m. on Saturday.

Northeast winds of 30 to 45 mph are expected with localized gusts over 55 mph. 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.
