Timelapse Captures Snowy Conditions in Hawaii

Timelapse footage taken on December 1 captured wintry conditions atop Mauna Kea mountain in Hawaii, as a cold front was forecast to move across the island chain.

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a winter storm watch from December 2 through December 5 for high elevations on Hawaii’s Big Island.

“There is potential for significant snow or ice accumulations that may impact the summits, " the NWS warned. “Anyone planning travel to the summits, including hikers and campers, should monitor the latest forecasts and consider postponing their trip until improved weather returns.”
