...STRONG THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE OVER LEEWARD AND INTERIOR BIG
ISLAND THIS AFTERNOON...

Latest data indicate that there is potential for strong
thunderstorms to develop this afternoon over the leeward slopes and
interior portions of the Big Island. The primary threats with
these thunderstorms will be dangerous cloud to surface lightning
strikes, locally gusty winds, small hail, and very low visibility
in areas of heavy rain. At the higher elevations and summits of
Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, there is also the potential for briefly
heavy snow showers.

If you have outdoor plans on the Big Island this afternoon, be
aware of the threat of strong thunderstorms, and stay alert for
rapidly changing weather conditions. Remember that if you can
hear thunder, you can be struck by lightning. When thunder roars,
go indoors!
