Hawaii island summits under a winter storm watch; at least 6 inches of snow expected

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for Hawaii island summits from Thursday evening until Friday afternoon.

Forecasters said heavy snow with total accumulation of more than 6 inches is possible, making travel conditions difficult and significantly reducing visibility.

The watch is for Big Island summits above the 12,000-foot level.

“Anyone planning travel to the summits, including hikers and campers, should monitor the latest forecasts and consider postponing their trip until improved weather returns,” the weather service said.
