Record temperatures set at Lihue, Honolulu airports

    State transportation officials' management of Lihue Airport is being questioned during a Senate hearing.

The windy, cloudy and rainy weather Saturday not only disrupted weekend plans, but it also likely broke up a streak of record high temperatures.

Kauai has set or matched record temperatures for the last four days and on Friday, Honolulu’s high of 91 degrees tied a record set at the airport in 1995.

At the Lihue Airport, the high of 87 degrees Friday beat the old record of 86 set in 2006. Lihue also set a new record high of 88 degrees on Thursday, 87 degrees on Wednesday and 87 degrees on Tuesday.

Since Oct. 10, Lihue has set or tied high temperature records in six of the last eight days, thanks to warmer ocean temperatures and light winds.

Forecasters say Hawaii can expect more hot, muggy weather after Ana moves off to the northwest.

The National Weather Service says humid, Kona winds will blow in from the southeast, bringing moist air from the south and afternoon showers in leeward and mauka slopes through the end of the week. 

The Kona winds may also bring vog from Kilauea to the western islands.
