Weather in Hawaii
Written by Marie Glodt, Travel specialist at Travel to Maui
Today I would like to blog about the weather in Hawaii.
I know you may laugh and say “but it is always nice in Hawaii!” In part that is true.
The state of Hawaii has two seasons, winter and summer. The main differences are the amount of rain and much less so the temperatures, especially from place to place.
The average temperature year-round is 75º F between the warmest weather in August and the coldest weather in January. The daytime temperature may vary 5 - 7º F.
Temperatures vary depending on elevation. In the summer if you go over 2,000 feet the weather is definitely cooler as temperatures drops three degrees for every 1000 feet of elevation.
It rains more on the windward side of all islands. Most of the resorts and hotel are located on the leeward side of the island. Or the sunny side of the island.
