Hawaii’s emergency services are getting no rest, over the last couple of days in particular, on the big Island. First the U.S. Geological Survey’s Hawaiian Volcano Observatory recorded a 4.5-magnitude earthquake off Hawaii Island on Sunday morning. Second, trade wind weather will begin returning Monday as a low pressure system to the west-southwest of the state. Overnight, Sunday into Monday, there’s a chance for unsettled conditions and localized downpours. There may also be the off chance of an isolated thunderstorm, however more normal trade wind conditions should prevail by Tuesday.
Last of all, a Winter Storm Warning has been issued for the summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea with three to six inches of additional snow expected above 11,000 feet. This making the lead up to Christmas a very busy time.
