The climate of Honolulu (Hawaii
- United States of America)
Honolulu is the capital of the state of Hawaii. The city is located in
the southeastern part of the island of Oahu, which is one of the most
important tourist destinations. Honolulu is mostly known for the
Waikiki suburb. Along the narrow Waikiki Beach many high rise hotels
can be found. Mainly American citizens spend their vacation here.
Almost half of all tourists that visit Hawaii stay in one of the
hotels in this area which only has a surface area of 4 square
kilometers which is filled with hotels, shopping malls, restaurants
and bars. If you want to experience the authentic Hawaiian atmosphere
Honolulu is not the right place. A population of almost 400,000, high
rise buildings and congested highways are not conducive to a blissful
atmosphere. About 11 kilometers to the west of Honolulu the American
Naval base Pearl Harbor can be found which was attacked by the
Japanese on 7 December 1941 causing America to get involved in WWII.
Because of the geographical location of Honolulu on the island of Oahu
the city has a tropical savannah climate with low precipitation
figures. Honolulu can record 500 millimeters of annual precipitation.
On average Honolulu gets 98 days of precipitation per year. Winters
are slightly wetter than summers. However, there is no distinct rainy
season. During the day temperatures in Honolulu are between 27-31
degrees Celsius (80-88 degrees Fahrenheit). During the night
temperatures are between 18-24 degrees Celsius (65-75 degrees
Fahrenheit). Because of an ever blowing trade wind humidity figures
remain relatively low compared to other tropical destinations. In
January the average humidity figure is 82%. However, during the summer
this percentage drops to 75%.
