Blizzard Warning Issued for Elevated Areas of Oahu, Hawaii! (credit: KSPR Meteorologist Kevin Lighty)
DISCUSSION: Over the last 12 to 24 hours, a strengthening low pressure system has been making its ways towards Oahu, Hawaii. As it continues to head towards the island of Oahu, there will continue to be strong winds overspreading across the peaks of the mountains on the main as well as the secondary island of Hawaii. It is due to the combination of these strong winds as well as the lower-end snowfall totals anticipated overnight (coupled with the snowfall already on the ground), there are and will continue to be blizzard conditions occurring at the peaks of the highest mountain peaks. Hence, if you or someone you know will be moving through or traveling close to these parts of Oahu, Hawaii, be sure to let them know now so they do not end up putting themselves into harm's way over the course of the next 6 to 12 hours.
