A Hawaiian spinner dolphin lives up to its name as it spins while leaping offshore from Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve last week.

For humans on land today through Thanksgiving, forecasters predict partly cloudy skies and breezy winds. Windward and mauka areas can expect scattered showers, with isolated showers in leeward areas. High temperatures will range from 80 to 86 degrees, with overnight lows of 69 to 74. Trade winds will blow 15 to 25 mph, diminishing on Thanksgiving.
