Snow on Haleakala, Maui, shortly after 4 p.m. (2.3.21) PC: Shayne Ige

A cold front is bringing periods of moderate snow and gusty winds to the summits of Big Island, and freezing rain to the summit of Haleakalā on Maui.

The wintry conditions have prompted a winter weather advisory, in effect for areas above the 9,000 foot elevation until 10 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021.

The Haleakalā Summit on Maui was closed as of 4 p.m. due to dangerously icy roadways, and will remain closed until road conditions improve.

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet, or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Motorists are advised to be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving.

The public is urged to not try to travel to the Haleakalā National Park Summit District. The entrance gate is closed and summit sunrise viewing has been canceled for Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021.
