The climate of Maui (Hawaii - United States of America)
Maui is the second largest island of Hawaii. The island was formed by volcanic eruptions. Because of this it is shaped quite oddly. Maui is very popular among nature lovers. From the island you can spot humpback whales or go diving or snorkeling. The underwater world is astonishingly beautiful. Several nice old villages can be found on the island as well. The historic city of Iahaina is well worth visiting. Just like the rest of Hawaii Maui has a tropical climate. because of the presence of mountains there may be large differences in precipitation figures. The western part of Maui is located on the leeward side and is fairly dry. East from the mountains it is much wetter. Because of the shape of the mountains there is a unique phenomenon on Maui, the so called Maui Vortex. This phenomenon causes the wind to be forced along the northern slopes of mount Halaekală. On the west side of this mountain it collides with Maui and is forced south. Because the wind is forced through a valley wind speeds rapidly increase. The downward breezes from the summits wipe out the clouds which explains why rainfall is uncommon here.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
