Mountain View Weather & Climate

Rainfall , rather than temperature, marks the greatest difference in seasons on The Big Island of Hawaii. Along with that, location is the greatest factor that determinates the amount of rain on the island. The area surrounding the town of Keaau, including the city of Hilo, is on the wet "windward" side of the island and receives significant rainfall all year, although more occurs in the winter months. This is mainly caused by orographic or "mountain rains," which form when moist trade winds move from the sea over the steep and high terrain of the island. Another source of rainfall comes from the towering cumulus clouds that build up over the mountains and interiors on sunny, calm afternoons. Although showers may be intense, they are usually brief and localized. The heaviest rains generally come from winter storms between November and April. Differences occur with each storm.
