It just snowed in Hawaii. In June.
Wednesday, June 15, 2016, 5:58 PM - Residents of Hawaii's Big Island woke up to find a fresh dusting of snow coating Mauna Kea volcano. In June.
While Mauna Kea is at an extremely high elevation -- 4,205 metres to be exact -- and therefore more likely to see snow, this kind of weather event at this time of year is still relatively uncommon.
According to the National Weather Service in the U.S., the wintry conditions were the result of "cold upper level temperatures and tall showers."
The summer solstice may be a week away, but weather conditions on the mountain are unpredictable year-round, according to the Mauna Kea Weather Center (MKWC).
“A calm sunny day may quickly become treacherous with hurricane force winds and blizzard conditions,” MKWC says in a statement. “Summit winds above 120 mph [193 kph] are not uncommon. Snowstorms have even occurred during the summer months.”
Hawaii isn't the only region that's experiencing wacky weather.
On Tuesday, cold temperatures aloft created a highly unstable environment in B.C.'s higher elevations, causing it to snow.
