Pepeekeo Weather & Climate

The east coast of The Big Island is one of the wettest regions in Hawaii with over 130 inches of rainfall each year. Due to the amount of precipitation, tropical rainforest and steep forested mountains also make it one of the most beautiful. The area right along the coast has temperatures that vary little because the thousands of miles of ocean surrounding the island moderates both air and water temperatures. However, the higher in elevation you go, the more extreme the temperatures. This means it can be 80 degrees at the beach and only 50 at the mountain summits. Due to moisture laden oceanic tradewinds, expect rainfall almost every day on the windward east coast, although showers generally occur in the evening hours and are short, especially during the summer months. Occasionally hurricanes reach Hawaii, although they are less frequent on the islands than in the South Pacific.
