Hopefully this won't turn into a trend.
The National Weather Service (NWS) has reported that today's (September 1, 2015) high temperature of 92 degrees Fahrenheit at Hilo, Hawaii, broke the old record of 88 degrees which was set in 2014. That's a difference of 4 degrees!
The NWS didn't reveal the exact humidity for that event, but estimates shows the humidity was close to 70 percent during that time, which would make the heat index as high as 112 degrees!
No other record highs was reported throughout the state.
Hilo is normally 83 degrees during September with a heat index in the mid 80s. That's a huge difference, huh?
