    Snow at 6,200 feet in Maui possibly for the first time



    "For perhaps the first time ever, snow has fallen in a Hawai'i State Park. Polipoli State Park on Maui is blanketed with snow. It could be the lowest elevant snow ever recorded in the state. Polipoli is at 6,200 feet elevation," the DLNR said.

    Isn't it the middle of summer in that part of the world?

    No, it is winter there too.

    For some reason, I thought that it was south of the equator. It must be that whole south Pacific thing.

    Winter or not, it’s obviously anomalous.

    We had 5 inches of snow last year in one night. First snow since 1988. Freaky things happens.

    actually Hawaii gets snow every year but generally not this low in elevation.

    According to Ken Rubin, an assistant professor of geology and geophysics at the University of Hawaii, "it snows here every year, but only at the very summits of our three tallest volcanoes (Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and Haleakala).""The snow level almost never gets below 9,000 feet in Hawaii during the winter, but since these mountains are taller than 13,600 feet, 13,700 feet and 10,000 feet, respectively, they get dusted with snow a few times a year. It rarely stays on the ground for more than a few days though."
