Updated at 11 a.m. on Feb. 12: The summits of Maunakea and Mauna Loa on the Big Island are expected to get another round of wintry weather starting this afternoon.
The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a winter weather advisory for the summits above 11,000 feet that will be in effect from noon today (Sunday, Feb. 12) through 6 p.m. Monday.
A low aloft moving over the Big Island from the east will bring in moisture and instability in the mid-levels of the troposphere, resulting in snow accumulations over the Big Island summits through Monday. Additional snow accumulations of up to 2 inches are expected.
Travel to the summits will be difficult because of snow accumulation and reduced visibility. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving.
In addition, a high surf advisory remains in effect until 6 a.m. Monday for southeastern portion of the Big Island.
