By Suzy Strutner 3.9k Snow cones in a snow storm? Yes please! The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, two of Hawaii’s  tallest volcanoes , after a blanket of snow fell on their summits  overnight and heavy bursts continue.   While visitors laze on Big Island beaches below, “ significant amounts of snow ” are expected to continue through the weekend at altitudes above 11,000 feet. Snowfall could pile up some 20 to 30 inches through Saturday, local news station Hawaii News Now  reports. Hmm, this isn’t quite the sandy paradise we usually see in photos: First snow of the season observed today on Hawaii's Mauna Loa volcano https://t.co/EFi1JNAZS8 pic.twitter.com/Hi9496hJW1 — newszbreakinwx (@newszbreakinwx) December 2, 2016 Snow actually isn’t an entirely rare sight in Hawaii:  The islands’ volcanic peaks can get snow or rain at any time of year , including July .  But of course, visitors and locals often make a point to play in the fall whenever possible. The summits of  Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea  are currently closed due to this week’s snowstorm, but when things subside, it won’t be a surprise to see snowboarders and skiers taking to the makeshift slopes.
