    When counting also the Köppen sub-categories the island of Hawaii hosts 8 (out of 13 in total) climate zones. The islands receive most rainfall from the trade winds on their north and east flanks (the windward side) as a result of orographic precipitation. Coastal areas, in general, and especially the south and west side or leeward sides, tend to be drier. Kona means leeward in Hawaiian. Kona winds bring hot, humid air and unstable weather. If they persist for more than a couple of days, they also bring vog, a thick haze caused by the Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island. Kona winds are most common October-April. Rainfall. Precipitation is the biggest differentiating factor in Hawaii’s climate.

FURTHER STUDIES ON MARINE BACTERIA WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE DREW HYPOTHESIS ON CaCO3, PRECIPITATION IN THE SEA [C.B. Lipman] on. A study of cases with general heavy rainfall for two or more days over the Islands further emphasizes the importance of rainfall associated with the trade circulation.

Cases of very little precipitation over the Islands show that the type of flow pattern with an approximately west-east running front to the north but fairly close to the Islands Cited by: 7. Extreme geographic variations in rainfall in Hawaii pose a problem of finding a simple parameter of rainfall which will be descriptive of both rainfall amounts and distribution.

With a view to developing such a parameter, regression formulae are developed which relate mean monthly rainfall to mean annual by: 6.

gions in Hawaii, but it is indeed a pronounced amount in dry regions such as Waikiki, Oahu, where the mean annual precipitation is mm. R5d is the annual maxi-mum consecutive 5-day precipitation amount, with units in millimeters.

Similar to R5d, another index related to the magnitude of intense rainfall is the percentile-based. Climate of the Hawaii islands is formed by trade winds.

Due to their influence precipitation falls mostly in northern and eastern sides of islands. Coastal areas in south and west are drier. Because of trade-winds and potential torrential rains most of resorts are located on the leeward coasts of the islands.

The annual precipitation totals are averages based on weather data collected from to for the NOAA National Climatic Data Center.

You can jump to a separate table for each island: Hawaii Big Island, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai and Oahu Hawaii Big Island. Climate in Hawaii. Average temperatures and precipitation amounts for more than 28 cities in Hawaii.

A climate chart for your city, indicating the monthly high temperatures and rainfall. Here are some average weather facts we collected from our historical climate data: On average, the temperatures are always high.

The months of December have a high chance of precipitation. Honolulu has dry periods in April, May, June, July, August and September. The warmest month is August with an average maximum temperature of 31°C (87°F).

In Hawaii, the climate is tropical, with a hot season from June to October (called kau in the Hawaiian language) and a relatively cool season (hooilo) from December to March. The trade winds, constant winds blowing from the north-east, strongly influence the climate of these islands, creating microclimates, wet or dry, depending on slope exposure.

Hawaii Travel Information There are six major Hawaiian Islands for you to choose from when planning your Hawaii trip or vacation. They are, in order of popularity, Oahu, Maui, the Big Island of Hawaii, Kauai, Molokai and Lanai.

We go into detail about the four most popular within this travel guide to. Purchase Ocean Circulation and Climate, Volume - 2nd Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNThe Hawaiian Islands have a moderate tropical climate with gentle northeasterly tradewinds and warm Pacific waters almost year-round.

Temperatures vary little from place to place, except at higher elevations (see “mountain conditions,” below). The average annual temperature of 75 degrees Fahrenheit ( degrees Celsius) fluctuates only a few degrees from summer (May through October) to.

Our findings estimate that minimum temperature and average temperature are correlated with the spread of COVID in New York city.

Previous studies of Tan et al. () and Vandini et al. () support our findings. Shi et al. () also researched climate indicators and stated that temperature serves as a driver for the COVID As a cultural and financial capital of the world, New York city.

International Journal of Climatology 34(15) Chu P-S, Chen H () Interannual and interdecadal rainfall variations in the Hawaiian Islands. Journal of Climate – Micro-climates Each Hawaii island boasts its own micro-climate depending on where you stay.

The island weather is very much influenced by the trade winds which generate windward and leeward regions. In general, the north and east facing coasts tend to get more rain than the south and west-facing coasts. Climate scientists, or climatologists, study average temperatures, precipitation, wind, humidity, and other weather properties over large timescales in a given area.

These long-term time scales are usually a minimum of decades, and can examine a particular area, or even the entire global climate. Weather in The Hawaiian Islands is very consistent, with only minor changes in temperature throughout the year. There are really only two seasons in Hawaii: summer (kau) from May to October and winter (hooilo) from November to average daytime summer temperature at sea level is 85° F (° C), while the average daytime winter temperature is 78° (° C).

Hawaiian-Pacific Studies is the study of the Hawaiian and Pacific Island peoples and cultures. Ho‘okahi paena o ka moana nui ‘akea.

At the foundation of the Hawaiian-Pacific Studies program is the perspective and understanding that a single ocean connects the. Precipitation in Hawai‘i includes rain, various types of frozen precipitation (such as snow, sleet, hail, and freezing rain), and fog drip. Frozen precipitation is a minor contributor overall.

However, fog drip, derived from direct interception of cloud droplets by vegetation, is a major source of water in the middle-elevation fog zones of. The American state of Hawaii, which covers the Hawaiian Islands, is tropical but it experiences many different climates, depending on altitude and surrounding.

The island of Hawaii for example hosts 4 climate groups on a surface as small as 4, square miles according to the Köppen climate types: tropical, arid, temperate and polar.

When counting also the Köppen sub-categories the island of Hawaii .The outstanding features of Hawaii's climate include mild temperatures throughout the year, moderate humidity, persistence of northeasterly trade winds, significant differences in rainfall within short distances, and infrequent severe storms.

That being said, we’ve visited Hawaii island during the high-precipitation months of January and March and we enjoyed sunshine every day of the trip. Another point to note about the above rainfall chart is that the significant increase in rainfall between February and March is partially due to the fact that March has more days than February.
