Kauai’ Seasonal Changes
Kauai’s temperate nature draws warm-weather-seekers from all over the world. The equatorial sun beams brightly, while tropical trade winds usher rejuvenating gusts of fresh ocean air. Most of the time, this is pure reality. However, there are a few seasonal shifts in weather systems, temperature and ocean currents to consider when planning your paradise vacation.
To the untrained eye, Kauai seems the same from season-to-season. Tropical fruit constantly drips from the trees. Salt water laps the shores of white sand beaches. And comfortable temperatures permeate the aromatic air. Yet, as the seasons change, these elements also change. Different fruits are featured at the farmer’s markets. The surface of the sea transforms from ripples to waves. And a slight difference can be felt in temperature.
Here’s a quick breakdown of seasonal norms, keeping in mind that each year is different from the last and weather is notoriously random.
Summer (May through October)
Winter (November through April)
Regardless of when you venture to Kauai, paradise will be waiting for you. The seasonal shifts in elements are slight, oftentimes only apparent to the keen of eye. And, being a relatively small island full of microclimates, sunshine is always around the corner from clouds. If its raining on the North Shore, then head south! If it’s surf your seeking, check the swell and follow the seasonal flow. Adventures are boundless and equalized weather promotes exploration on all fronts, no matter the month of year.
