Another foot of snow could hit Hawaii’s mountain peaks Sunday, in addition to the two feet that have fallen since Thursday.
According to USA TODAY, a winter storm warning remains in effect for the summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea through Monday morning. Heavy snow and winds are expected to reduce visibility to below a quarter mile at times.
On top of the winter weather, the rest of Hawaii is under a flash flood watch as thunderstorms are in the forecast beginning Sunday.
Mauna Loa and its sister peak of Mauna Kea are both volcanos. Mauna Kea is the highest point in Hawaii.
The National Weather Service reported that the only other area of Hawaii that gets snow with any regularity is the Haleakalā volcano on Maui, which gets snow once about every five years.
