HAWAIʻI ISLAND - The summits could get 5 inches of snow and experience 90 mph wind gusts before the weekend.

– The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a Winter Weather Advisory, as well as a High Wind Watch, for the summits of Maunakea and Mauna Loa.

The weather alerts will go into effect on Thursday, as deep moisture along a front will move over the Big Island, producing periods of snow showers and freezing rain. “The threat of significant winter weather may extend into Friday,” forecasters wrote.

Total snow accumulations of up to 5 inches could occur at elevations above 10,500 feet.

Also, west winds are expected to be 45 to 75 mph with localized gusts over 90 mph possible, starting Thursday morning. “Winds are expected to ease Saturday night and Sunday, followed by a significant increase again Monday,” the National Weather Service said.
