Don't put the winter blankets away just yet.
The temperature at 5 this morning at Honolulu International Airport was 63, downright chilly for the month of May.
That ties the record low for the day set back in 1952. The average low temperature for the month is 69, according to National Weather Service records. The all-time record low for the month of may is 60 degrees, which was recorded back in 1982.
The forecast calls for the possibility of another cool night tonight and another cool day tomorrow as a cold front lingers over the state.
Trade winds, and somewhat warmer weather, should make their return on Thursday.
The detailed forecast for the next several days is:
Today, partly cloudy. Highs 75 to 81. North winds 10 to 15 mph.
Tonight, partly cloudy with scattered showers. Lows 59 to 67. Northwest winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain 40 percent.
Tomorrow, partly cloudy. Scattered showers in the morning. Then, isolated showers in the afternoon. Highs 76 to 82. Northwest winds around 10 mph, shifting to the east in the afternoon. Chance of rain 40 percent.
Tomorrow night, mostly clear. Lows 64 to 71. Northeast winds 10 to 15 mph.
Thursday, mostly sunny in the morning then becoming partly cloudy. Isolated showers. Highs 78 to 83. Northeast winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent.
Thursday night, mostly clear with isolated showers. Lows 63 to 71. Northeast winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent.
