Why You Might Wonder What The Weather’s Like In Hawaii In April?
For many people, Hawaii is an island in paradise, particularly favored by those of you who love gorgeous hot climates, not to mention exceptional scenery.
And it’s fair to say that Hawaii does have a great deal of sunny weather.
But, there are some paradise-like islands out there that see a mix of both sun and rain. Take Jamaica, for example.
Sure, Jamaica’s tropical climate brings warmth all year round, but they actually have not one but two rainy seasons.
The first one of the year starts at the beginning of May and runs right through to the end of June, while the second one starts in September and runs right through to November, making it about two months long.
But although Hawaii and Jamaica are a very similar distance from the equator, they are in very different positions geographically, with Hawaii being surrounded by a greater expanse of the ocean.
Therefore, it attracts rain clouds differently, and has very different weather conditions.
Sun And Rain In Hawaii
Despite the gorgeous warmth of this island, it turns out that Hawaii isn’t actually sunny all year round, and it does see some precipitation.
According to our sources, Hawaii is sunny for a whopping 240 days a year on average!
But while that sounds like quite a lot, this also means that it gets rain, or at least some kind of precipitation, the remaining 166 days of the year.
The wettest months in Hawaii typically fall between November and March, with December being the wettest month of all.
Incidentally, the driest month in Hawaii is in June.
Hurricanes In Hawaii
But to be perfectly honest, a bit of rain in Hawaii isn’t what you need to be worrying about. The weather you most want to avoid during your trip to Hawaii is hurricanes…
The hurricane season in Hawaii, which falls between the beginning of June and lasts right the way through to the end of November.
Luckily, however, Hawaii escapes many hurricanes due to the various winds, currents, and ocean temperatures of the surrounding area, and hurricanes, thankfully, aren’t particularly frequent.
But they do happen occasionally.
What Is The Weather Like In Hawaii In April?
And now for the news you’ve been scrolling for. I’m pleased to report that in Hawaii, in April, the daytime temperatures are comfortably warm, averaging in the high 70s and low 80s in degrees Fahrenheit.
Evenings are a little cooler, thanks to the sun going down, and they will dip into the 60s.
And if you’ve been paying attention, you will have noticed that the gap between the first and second rainy season goes from April to September, so not only will it be lovely and warm in April, but you won’t see much rain either.
Although it can be windy there in April on occasion, you would be dodging the hurricane season, because that doesn’t start until June.
And even if it was windy, the temperature is so warm that it won’t feel like a cold wind at all.
What To Wear In Hawaii In April
I am pleased to report that you can get away with wearing summer clothes most of the time during your trip if you were to go in April!
On a side note, the weather in Hawaii is very localized, which means that, if it’s raining in one spot, that does not mean that it can’t be lovely and sunny in some other spot that’s really close by.
This means that if it’s sunny on the beach, that does not mean it will also be sunny in the town. So taking a lightweight pac-a-mac might be a good idea.
All in all then, April is clearly an excellent time of year to go to Hawaii and enjoy the weather, the culture and the break.
