Hawaii now expected to get 3 feet of snow

Ain’t global warming grand?

Hawaii’s highest peak could get another foot (30 cm) of snow tomorrow.

This is on top of the 2 feet (60 cm) that have fallen since Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

A winter storm warning was already in effect for the summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea through this evening.

“Then we’re expecting another round on Sunday and Sunday night,” said Matthew Foster, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Honolulu.

    So this story over at Accuweather says a weakening vortex due to lack of arctic ice is responsible.

    They don’t come outright and say it is AGW causing more cold and snow, but they do seem to want to imply it.

    Here where I live on the MI/WI border, has been not so bad so far. Glad the weather folks have been a bit off. We shall see.

  7. Many on this bog suggested last year that this would occur with increasing regularity. Particularly those Tropical volcanos above 10,000 ft., cooling is taking place not only at high latitudes but at high altitudes even in Tropical regions as the warm bubble around the world’s tropical region shrinks in this much energy EUV reduced Grand Solar Minimum.
    Already, the regional land temperatures and early snows are breaking the previous Dalton Records. Even in the supposedly warm Middle East winter snow is becoming a regular occurrence, with frost damage causing $millions of damage a year.
    The US should think it’s self-lucky that it had a respite from the cold winters last year due to the El Nino, with La Nina developing and this cycle closing down over the next 4 years, winters will only get worse.

    • meanwhile in the UK, all this is irrelevant as it doesn’t happen outside our front door and we are due temperatures in the mid teens Celsius this week. It’s all just ‘Foreign Johnny’ weather anyway.

  8. yep and on the first article they were trying to underestimate the importance of this. Like it wasn’t a big deal.
    But NOW it is!! Got that???

    Once again, this is how ice ages begin! Sure looks like kids in Hawaii will know what snow looks like 75 years from now.
    So much for that idiot Dave “Whiner.”
    He told us that snow would be a thing of the past years ago already.
