Aloha Blizzard

A dangerous snow storm occurring this winter might not be major news, but a major snow storm occurring in Hawaii might be surprising to many. And that’s exactly what the high elevations of the Big Island is experiencing–a major snow storm that will approach blizzard conditions at time.

Snow in Hawaii is something that I wrote about in Weather Whys, and the snow on the ground in Hawaii is something that I wrote about for AOL News today.

Here’s what it looked like on Mauna Loa earlier today, courtesy of Earth System Research Laboratory.
