Hawaii snowfall at lowest ever in elevation – Video

And four-foot snow drifts! Unprecedented, historic, says National Weather Service. 

Snow on Haleakala on Maui is rare but not unheard of, as it happens about every five years. What was unusual last weekend was that snow fell at such a low elevation.


Officials say the coating at 6,200 feet at a state park on Maui could be the lowest-elevation snowfall ever recorded in the state.

“Polipoli State Park, at 6,200 feet they reported snow. that is pretty rare for Maui obviously,” National Weather Service Meteorologist Melissa Dye told KHON2. “I had talked to a ranger this morning and he said they had 4-foot drifts. Very impactful.”
