Cold weather sets records in Honolulu and Hilo

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 03:42 p.m. HST, Apr 02, 2013

People in Hawaii are donning sweaters and long-sleeve shirts as winds from the north send temperatures to record lows.

The temperature at Honolulu International Airport dropped to 61 degrees this morning, below the date's previous record of 62 degrees set in 2002.

The lowest temperature ever recorded in Honolulu is 52 degrees, marked on Jan. 20, 1969.

It's also cold on the Big Island, where thousands are gathering this week for the annual Merrie Monarch Festival celebrating hula and Hawaiian culture.

Temperatures dipped to 58 degrees at Hilo Airport this morning, lower than the previous record of 60 degrees set in 1953.

Hilo hit an all-time-low of 53 degrees on Feb. 21, 1962.

National Weather Service forecaster Ian Morrison says temperatures will warm slightly as the usual east-northeast trade winds return.

The weather is cold; therefore, there is no global warming. Checkmate, Al Gore.

Almost misread the headline as Caldwell sets records in Honolulu and Hilo. He was born in Hilo, was he not?

Perhaps it is time that we blame the current weather events (here and from all over the planet) on "Global Cooling", made by men of course from all the pollution we produce which is blocking the sun and cooling the planet (this could go either way, right? so it is convenient), and maybe Al Gore could say that that's what he meant, not "Global Warming" .... and there will be plenty of fools that would believe him again, especially if Media Supports him as they did so far.
