Watch snow fall on Hawaii's dormant volcano

The video was filmed on December 1 and 2 at the summit, near the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFH Telescope) observatory.

CFH Telescope representative, Mary Beth Laychak told Reuters in a message that there were no staff at the summit presently as they observe the area remotely from their Waimea offices.

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a rare blizzard warning expecting at least 12 inches of snow with wind gusts at about 100mph at the Big Island summits on their Friday (December 3) weekend forecast.

NWS added in a tweet that snowfall for the highest elevations (above 11,000 ft) in Hawaii is "fairly common."
