Kahului heats up a record-setting week

Temperatures in Kahului soared to 93 on Saturday, breaking the old record of 91 set on the same day in 2019, according to the National Weather Service.

This capped off a record-setting week in which Kahului reached a scorching 95 on Friday, breaking the old record of 92 set in 2015, and 92 degrees on Tuesday, tying the former record set last year.

On Sunday morning, the National Weather Service also issued a special weather statement warning of coastal flooding statewide.

The combination of seasonally high astronomical tides and abnormally high sea levels will likely produce nuisance coastal flooding through much of this week, the weather service said.

Impacts may include flooding of beaches that are normally dry and saltwater inundation of typically vulnerable low-lying roads, docks, boat ramps and other coastal infrastructure.

Flooding is expected around times of afternoon high tide through Thursday.
