When potential visitors to Hawaii envision what the area looks like, they might picture characteristics like green islands, sunny skies, never-ending sandy beaches and crystal blue waters, along with warm temperatures. These are typical assumptions, but they are pretty close to describing the Hawaiian Islands year round! But like the rest of the country, Hawaii can see different weather and temperatures from day to day, and from season to season.
Take the months that throw winter weather at residences and vacationers alike. Between the months of November thru March—late fall and late winter—the days are still filled with sunny blue skies, while clouds drop winter rain. This is in addition to the islands’ usual moisture caused by its tropical climate. Let’s learn a little about the winter weather in Hawaii so you can be as prepared as possible for your fishing charter in Kailua-Kona, HI.
Hawaii experiences basically two seasons—summer and winter—with a pleasant paradise-like atmosphere all year. From November thru March, winter in Hawaii sees an average daytime temperature of 78 degrees and an evening low of approximately 68 degrees.
Winds and rain
The way the winds travel across Hawaii is different from the mainland states. Hawaiian winds move from east to west, and moisture in the air gets trapped against the tall mountains. Depending which side the moist air is caught on, winds are either cool and wet or warm and dry. Also, rainfall measurements vary from island to island, from a few inches of rain a year to nearly fifteen feet throughout the year. You may have to be flexible with the weather, but you will still be able to take part in activities on the water and land during your visit.
Weather on the beach
Beaches in Hawaii are abundant. In fact, it’s not uncommon for folks to walk straight from a volcano trail entrance or pop out from a heavily green area only to find themselves on a beautiful stretch of beach. Whether you’re wanting to hang out on the beach before or after your scheduled fishing charter in Kailua-Kona, HI, know that although nighttime winter temperatures don’t drop much, there’s still a chance of rain showers. Bring an extra change of clothes with you to the beach, just in case!
Vog, also called volcanic smog, can only be experienced in Hawaii. It lingers in the air, similar to a foggy haze, and is caused by emissions from a volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii: Kilauea volcano. If you are planning to visit the Big Island, know that vog can affect people with respiratory issues like asthma, although everyone will have a different reaction.
