Cool weather sets record low temperatures this week

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:25 a.m. HST, Nov 15, 2013

A cold streak was broken Thursday morning when no new low temperature records were set in Hawaii.

Record low temperatures were recorded in Honolulu, Lihue and Kahului airports on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The 64 degree temperature in Honolulu broke the old record of 65 for the date set in 1950. Lihue Airport recorded 61 degrees, tying a record also set on Nov. 13, 1950.

On Tuesday, Kahului's 58 degree low temperature shattered the old record of 60 degrees set on Nov. 12, 1993. Lihue also set a record of 62 degrees, breaking the 1993 record of 63 degrees. Hilo also set a record low maximum temperature when the hottest it got was 74 degrees. The old maximum low of 77 degrees was set in 2001.

Forecasters say north winds and clear skies, which allow heat to escape, are the reasons it got so cold overnight.

The cloudy weather and the return of the trade winds should make for warmer nights through the weekend.

That first sentence must have been written by a 2nd grader: "A cold streak was broken this morning when no new low temperature records were set in Hawaii."

Man made global climate change is real and the record low temperature in Hawaii for that day was predictable. After the massive hurricane that was generated over Asia and hit the Philipines, the amount of heat energy TEMPORARILY taken out of the earths atmosphere and converted to kinetic energy in the form of a highly coordinated rotating wind event at speeds reaching 200mph is almost beyond comprehension. Hence the lower than expected point in temps experienced in Hawaii and in other parts of the world. Conservation of energy states energy can neither be crested nor destroyed in a closed environment, just converted from one form to another and the earths ecosystem via the atmosphere, ocean temperature and currents and the polar ice caps that reflect the proportion of water that is in the solid vs liquid vs gaseous states can readily interconvert that energy az seen by the history breaking size and speed of the hurricane that hit the Philipines . Man made global climate change will NOT END human civilization as we know it, however it will negatively impact humans, such as those living at sea level and in areas most vulnerable to hurricanes, storms, tidal surges, etc
