Haleakalā remained closed as of 9:22 a.m., with more bouts of winter weather in the forecast for the summit area.

Clouds obscured the view of the mountaintop from Central Maui this morning.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm watch saying, “very cold air aloft will once again move over the islands, beginning tonight and continuing into Friday.  Additionally, moisture is expected to occasionally spread to the elevations of the summits.”

The NWS says there is potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact the summits of the Big Island and Haleakalā on Maui.

The watch is in effect from late tonight through Thursday night.


Anyone planning travel to the summits, including hikers and campers, are asked to monitor the latest forecasts and consider postponing their trip until improved weather returns.
