A new record-high temperature of 93 degrees was set in Hilo Friday, breaking the old record for September 26 of 88 degrees set in 1995, the National Weather Service said.

It also beats the previous high temperature record for September at Hilo which was 92 degrees set on September 21, 1951.

The all-time high temperature record for Hilo is at 94 degrees set in November 2013.

Hilo and Lihue tied high temperature records Wednesday. The high of 89 degrees at Hilo tied a record for the date set in 2005.

Lihue’s high of 87 degrees tied a record set last year. It was the second straight day of record temperatures on Kauai.

On Tuesday, Maui saw its third straight day of record temperatures with a 92 degree high tying a record at Kahului Airport set in 1993.
