The National Weather Service in Honolulu has continued the High Wind Warning for the summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea until 6 a.m. Monday (Jan 5).

Winds are coming from the northwest at 30-50 mph with localized gusts over 70 mph with a gradual decrease of wind speeds overnight.

The strong winds can make driving difficult especially for high profile vehicles. Motorists should use caution while driving. The winds can also forcefully swing doors open or shut so use caution when opening or closing vehicle doors.

The Mauna Kea summit access road is closed due to snow and ice on roadways above the Visitor Information Station.
