Only two states had Winter Weather Warnings in effect Thursday…Alaska and Hawaii. And now this Winter Warning has turned into a Blizzard Warning for Hawaii.
It’s only for the high peaks (Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa) on the Big Island of Hawaii, but above 11,000 feet, it’s going to be nasty with snowfall reaching 12 inches or more and winds of up to 100 mph.
Of course, even wet heavy snow could drift significantly with winds that strong. There will be periods of zero visibility on the mountaintops.
