The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for the Big Island’s summits, reporting west winds of 40 to 50 mph with localized gusts over 60 mph just before noon on Monday.

The advisory is in effect until 6 a.m. Tuesday.

“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,” the National Weather Service said. “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.”
