A remarkable stretch of hot weather has baked Hawaii for the last month, with little sign of the heat backing off anytime soon. Honolulu, the Aloha State's capital city, had either tied or set record highs for seven straight days through Tuesday, with another on Wednesday looking likely.  If you broaden it back out to mid-May, Honolulu has recorded record highs in 18 of its past 35 days, through Tuesday. According to the National Weather Service office in Honolulu, the heat is largely due to warmer-than-average sea-surface temperatures and a slight disruption in trade winds. https://twitter.com/NWSHonolulu/status/1138239862228865029?s=20 As of last week, the laundry list of record highs was impressive, to say the least. And it was also not just confined to Honolulu and the island of Oahu, either. https://twitter.com/NWSHonolulu/status/1138239760303108096?s=20 A similar weather pattern is expected to keep high temperatures in roughly the same record ballpark over the next few days. Factor in the humidity, and even for Hawaii, it's exceptionally hot. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Chris Bianchi
