Hawaii has broken or tied 34 heat records since mid-May as warmer-than-normal sea surface temperatures and light winds combine to send the mercury soaring.
And unfortunately, there’s not much relief in the short-term forecast.
Forecasters said tradewinds are expected to strengthen ever so slightly Tuesday, but aren’t likely to return to normal before the weekend.
Kahului has seen a big chunk of the heat records in recent weeks.
