Hawaii Vacation Weather

The Weather In Hawaii is extremely pleasant, with warm temperatures all year-round, and few major storms. High temperatures in the major population and tourist centers range from the high 70s Fahrenheit in the winter to the mid to upper 80s in the summer, and lows are seldom below 65 in the summer or 60 in the winter. Other areas of the state can see lower temperatures because of elevation; there are mountain peaks that reach up to 13,000 feet on the island of Hawaii, and 10,000 feet on Maui. These peaks will get snow during the winter.

While the Hawaii Weather is very consistent in terms of temperature, precipitation is another matter. The ever-present trade winds will bring rain in an inconsistent manner, and the mountains influence the amount of rain that will fall on a given area. Small parts of Hawaii receive huge amounts of rain, while others receive little. The tourist areas, in general, receive frequent light sprinklings; on a given day you may experience 4 small storms that will deposit less than .01inch of rain. Heavier rains and storms can occur, although thunderstorms are rare and weak, and Hawaii usually avoids direct hits by hurricanes.
