Hawaiian Thunderstorms bring Heavy Rain and even some Mountain Snow to the Big Island

A string of weather fronts have brought thunder and lightning, heavy rain and even some mountain snow to Hawaii.

Bob Burke, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Honolulu, said: “We’re in a bit of a wet trade wind pattern at the current time. There’s been plenty of moisture moving into the islands from the east, and it’s a little unstable. Most windward locations received a decent amount of rainfall.”

According to Burke, Waiakea Uka received 1.73 inches of rain on Friday, while Hilo International Airport was drenched by 1.36 inches.

In addition, a decent dusting of snow capped both Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa on Friday, Nov 22


…adding to the accumulations observed earlier in the week.

Forecasters are expecting more moisture to move in over the weekend, bringing “another bout of more persistent showers” for East Hawaii, according to Burke, who concludes that the fronts will once again combine with cold air allowing additional snow-flurries atop the Big Island’s upper elevations.

The cold times are returning in line with historically low solar activity.

NASA has recently revealed this upcoming solar cycle (25) will be “the weakest of the past 200 years,” and they’ve correlated previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
