And on Monday, a temperature of 89 degrees broke the record of 88 degrees set for that day in 2015.

The NWS said moderate to breezy trade winds will continue through the weekend, delivering clouds and showers to windward areas while most leeward areas will remain mostly dry.

A small craft advisory is in effect through Sunday for typically windy waters around Maui and the Big Island.
