State is experiencing record high temperatures
HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii has experienced record high temperatures since the start of June.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Tuesday that temperatures reached above 90 degrees even times between June 4 and 9.
Officials say the temperatures have either tied or surpassed previous records in Honolulu on Oahu and Kahului on Maui.
A National Weather Service forecaster says the temperatures are likely from higher than normal water temperatures combined with lighter trade winds.
Honolulu was up to 90 degrees Saturday, tying a 1997 record, and 92 degrees Monday.
Officials report a streak of high temperatures for Kahului, which on May 22 reached 96 degrees, a record for that month.
Officials say temperatures in Kahului reached 95 degrees twice in the days afterward.
