Up to a foot more snow expected on Hawaii moutaintops; winter storm warning in effect
MAUNA KEA, Hawaii — More snow is expected to fall on Hawaii mountaintops as a winter storm warning goes into effect through Monday morning, December 5th.
Hawaii News Now reports (http://bit.ly/2g1jFPj) up to a foot more of snow could fall. A previous warning was lifted Saturday for a storm system that also brought frozen precipitation to higher elevations and heavy rain elsewhere.
The summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea on Hawaii’s Big Island are closed amid icy, windy, hazardous conditions.
The National Park Service says people can see the deepening layer of snow at 10,000 feet.
Hawaii also is under a flash flood watch into Sunday afternoon.
