Lowest Recorded Temperature

greenspun.com : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread

I read in one of the other Q&A's that the lowest recorded temperature in Hawaii was -11. Is this Fahrenheit, and when did it occur?

January 1961, Haleakala on Maui. Since Haleakala is over 10,000 feet in elevation, you get snow during the winter and the temperature is normally about 30 degrees cooler than sea level.

I saw on a bottle cap from Snapple that Hawaii never reported a temperature below zero degrees farenheit
