The thunderstorms that fired up over the western end of the state and upslope of Kona have come to an end. We could see another round on Wednesday as the humid air mass lingers. Pop up showers are possible after daytime heating.
Record heat may continue. There was a new record in Hilo as the mercury reached 89 degrees but it felt like 103 when factoring in the humidity. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s, but because of the humidity it's going to feel much warmer, with "feels like" temperatures in the upper 90s to lower 100s.
We are also watching a tropical disturbance to the south that may develop into a tropical cyclone. There is a 50 percent chance within 5 days. Models just take it south of the islands.
A small to moderate north-northwest is expected Thursday into Friday, while south shores will see some pulses. However, no advisory level surf is expected.
