Average weather in January, December, March, February, and April is included in the Ultimate Kauai weather guide.
When planning your Kauai vacation, weather patterns can be an important part.We want to help you make an informed decision by providing you with a lot of Kauai weather data.
Weather history is a pretty good predictor of future weather.It is the best tool we have.An unusual weather pattern can change the weather experience.It's true of any destination, not just Kauai.
The high and low temperatures are the beginning.The average monthly high and low temperatures are shown in the graph.The town of Lihue is close to the sea and is representative of all the beach resorts on the island.The weather is warm year-round in Kauai.In January, daytime highs average 78 F and evening lows are 65 F.This link can be used to convert temperatures to Celcius.
One interesting pattern about rain in Hawaii is that more rain falls overnight than during daytime hours.Rain showers are usually brief.As you consider this data, keep that in mind.
We wouldn't hesitate to book a Hawaii vacation in the winter even though it's a little wet.We like to go to Hawaii in the winter because of the whale season.In the winter months, we have rarely encountered rain.We have never had a full day of rain.
Tourists enjoy the benefits of rain in Hawaii.The waterfalls are pretty because of the rain.Some waterfalls are only a trickle after a dry summer.Hawaii has delicious produce because of the rain.One of Hawaii's famous rainbows can be seen after a shower.
Will it rain on my Hawaii vacation?There are a lot of fun rainy day activities on Kauai.
The data collected at the main airport in Lihue shows the average monthly rainfall levels.The driest months are April through September.December had 5.2 inches of rain.
The increase in precipitation between February and March is partially due to the fact that March has more days than February.The rainfall levels in March were slightly higher than in February, which is not as dramatic as the chart suggests.
The micro-climates on the island are an aspect to consider as you review the rainfall levels throughout the year.Some areas are more dry than others.The map shows the annual precipitation.
Bing has a bird's eye view map of the island.The areas with the most rain are the darker ones.
The popular resort area of Poipu is the driest region, followed by the east side towns of Kapaa and Lihue where many hotels and vacation rentals are.Even though Princeville gets more rain than the east and south resort areas, it is still a popular destination with vacation accommodations.Does that mean that if you stay in Princeville, you will always experience rain?That is highly unlikely.Rain showers are usually short and most rain falls overnight.If you are planning a vacation during a month with above average rainfall levels, it might be a good idea to stay in the east or south resort regions.Based on history and probability, it is a safer bet for better weather.
You can split your time between the different climates if you're torn between where to stay.There are two different vacation experiences on the same island.
We want to share some of our personal experiences with the weather on Kauai.We went to Kauai in the months of February, April, May and October.We only had one rainy day that ruined our plans.May was one of the driest months.Poipu is one of the driest regions.
The average humidity is in the low to mid 70%.Most people agree that 70% is high humidity.Despite the humidity, the tradewinds from the northeast keep you comfortable.The atmosphere feels hot and sticky when Kona winds come from the southwest.
In humid weather, we recommend that you stay in a place with plenty of air conditioning.We spent a couple of nights in a condo without air conditioning.We would start to feel comfortable in the condo with a ceiling fan on.We would always stay in accommodations with air conditioning.
The last major storm to hit Kauai was in 1992.During the summer months of June through November, Hurricane season in Kauai is usually quiet, but this year has been busy with tropical storms.
Go Visit Hawaii was founded bySheila Beal.You can connect with her on social media.
Thanks for the question, Bruce.The entire site is mobile friendly, but we don't have an app.GoVisitHawaii.com can be accessed from your mobile device if you create a bookmark on the site.Hope that helps!
We are in Kauai through June.There is a weather report.I only see one day when it is sunny.It looks like major rain storms the whole time we are there, even though the rain is brief.Are we ready for the weather report?Can we expect more sunny days?
We don't have a way of knowing how much sun or rain you'll get.
I will be in Kauai from December 10th to December 18th.The weather forecast is showing rain.Is postponing the vacation plan in Kauai a good idea?
We went to Kauai in September.There were showers every day in the forecast.We only had a few brief showers and the rest of our time was dry.
We traveled to Kaua'i 6 times in September.Most days the skies are overcast and there is a small amount of rain.It's still a good place to visit.The Hula festival is held in September.
We are going to have a honeymoon in late October or early November.Do you recommend Maui or Kauai at this time of year?
You have to make a good choice.Both islands can be visited in late October and early November.
I have been both.It depends on what you are looking for.Maui had a lot of people and lots of shopping.I thought Hawaii should be less people and more casual.We are in the war room 5 star restaurant with a pair of shorts pulled up over our bottoms.
I'm Hi.We are going to Hawaii in late November.We were thinking of going to either Kauai or the Big Island for a week to see a few sites.We like to walk, hike, and mountain bike, but we aren't relaxing on the beach.Would you recommend the Big Island or Kauai based on your preferred activities?Is a week too long on either island?Is it possible to stay in two different locations if we want to rent something with a kitchen?Thanks!
You can't go wrong with either island.Both are amazing, but they are different.Take a look at our suggested itineraries for both islands and see which one appeals to you the most.
If you want to do that, you can stay in two different places.Govisithawaii.com has more information on where to stay on Kauai.
We leave tomorrow for a week in Kauai and I don't see any rain.I was depressed about the weather forecast for my first vacation in five years.I don't like rain.
Thank you very much.I'm very appreciative of your response.The overcast weather is just as depressing as the rain.I enjoy seeing the sun.
At the moment, we are in kauai.Over the past few years, we have visited 6 times.We travel late Oct/ early Nov to avoid crowds.We don't know why it is busy this year with more tourists.The weather has always been sunny.This year has been rainy with flash flooding.It has been a challenge at times to plan our activities around the weather.We try to go with the flow so we don't have to change our plans.
Take the weather forecast with a huge grain of salt and don't let it get you down.On any given day, the weather forecast is almost always wrong.This has never been an issue before this year.
My bet is that you can rent a convertible and enjoy the island.Food trucks serve amazing cuisine and are easy on the wallet.The Hanapepe Art Walks are fun.The central location and low key vibe of the area makes it a good place to stay.We like to walk the bike path along the ocean.
We love kauai and I could go on and on.It's our favorite Hawaiian island for many reasons.Aloha!
Sharon, thanks for adding your experience.We have been watching the weather on Kauai and hoping for clear skies.
We've been to Kauai for over a decade and have visited in all of the seasons.We prefer to come in December.Hawaii is so beautiful because it rains.Most occur at night.Usually there are showers during the day.Hawaii is not for people who want a vacation without rain.Sometimes it rains in Arizona.
I have been to most of the islands and neither has disappointed me.I love Hawaii.I will not be affected by the rain.
We are going to visit Kauai in February of 2019.What do you think about staying near the north shores?Did you stay in this area around this time of year?Thank you in advance for any feedback.
We avoided north shore in the winter for a number of reasons.It isn't a guarantee, but it is a safer bet to stay elsewhere in the hopes of nicer weather.
Our vacation starts on 9/25.The weather forecast says Thunderstorms most of the time, but I wouldn't be concerned if it said showers.Is it a good idea to delay?Any help would be appreciated.
Your guess is not as good as ours.There is no way for us to know if there will be a storm or how long it will last.Best wishes!
We are visiting Kauai over Christmas and would like to take a boat tour of the Napali Coast.I understand that boat tours can't leave from the North Coast at that time of year, but would we have any issues leaving the West side?
As long as ocean conditions permit, tours from the West shore can operate year round.
We would like to visit Kauai in June.We like to snorkel.The Poipu area is calmer in the winter than the North shore.Would you agree?
In Hawaii, that is the case.Snorkeling may still be possible because the surf is calmer in the summer.If you want to get a better understanding of seasonal ocean patterns, contact a Kauai snorkel equipment supplier or snorkel tour company that has more knowledge than we do.
The weather is always perfect when we go in July and August.It rains for 20 minutes in the morning and then warms up the rest of the day.
We will be visiting the islands for the first time on our 40th anniversary.Everyone agrees that you can't go wrong with any choice.We are thinking of seven days on Kauai in October.The site and your information have helped.
We have been to Kauai many times.The driest part of the island is Kekaha.It is dry all year round.We haven't had a rain shower for more than 5 days of the 150+ days we've been there.We have had at least a few hours of sunshine on those days.
We love the old Hawaii feel of the area and are away from the tourist resorts.The Friday art show is a lot of fun if the rain stops and the sun comes out after we drive by Hanapepe.There aren't many vacation rentals in Kekaha.Also less demand.The landscape is not as green due to the dry climate, but you are only 15 minutes away from lush rainforests, so I would rather have the sunshine.There are lots of hiking and viewpoints above the Napali Coast, and it is the closest jumping off spot to the Waimea Canyon.
The longest white sand beach on the Islands is 17 miles long and runs from State Park to Kekaha.The State Park is our favorite place for a sunset picnic.People are not on the beach.There are 10 cars on the beach for 3 miles.The views of the coast are great.
We are going to go to Hawaii in August 2020.We will be in Maui and Kauai from August 22-28.August is the hottest month.If we are staying in places without air conditioning, how worried should we be?
We address air conditioning and the preference for it here.Our stays without AC were in the month of May.
