Snow in tropical Hawaii!

December 6, 2016

Parts of the US state of Hawaii have received up to 90cm of snow over the past few days!

Weather experts say that it is not unusual for snow to fall in tropical Hawaii, but rarely has it fallen so heavily at such low altitudes.

The snow is heaviest around two of the island’s highest peaks, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, with more snow is also forecast for Sunday.

Some winters both mountains receive little or no snow, such as last year.
