Summer is going out with a bang.
Unlike most parts of the Northern Hemisphere, the Big Island of Hawaii typically experiences their hottest period of the year in September.
On Labor Day, the heat index in my home peaked at 102 degrees Fahrenheit. The air temperature was 88 degrees with a relative humidity of 73 percent during that time.
I doubt that's the hottest I'll experience this year, because Hurricane Norman is forecast to send extreme humidity to the Big Island while it blocks their trade winds on Thursday and Friday.
After that, Tropical Storm Olivia could potentially send extreme humidity to the Big Island by the middle of next week...
