10-Day Weather Forecast for Maui

Maui weather 10 Day forecast with conditions, climate for Kahului, Lahaina, Hana, Lanai and Upcountry. Maui weather today forecast with satellite pictures, news, tsunami warnings.

On Maui, with its two volcanic mountains, and separated by the central valley, you'll encounter everything from barren lunar-like desert atop 10,320-foot Mt. Haleakala, to lush tropical creepers and wild ginger east toward the Hana coast, to bamboo forests, eucalyptus and pines moving upcountry. Pu'u Kukui, the summit of the West Maui Mountains, holds the official U.S. rainfall record at 739 inches in 1982.

Excellent trade winds and beach access make Maui's north shore near Paia and Haiku a world-class windsurfing and kite boarding destination. Maui's south and west coasts provide almost year-round sunshine, dry weather and fantastic beaches along the resort areas of Makena, Wailea, Kihei, Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua.

Maui has a spectacular, diverse climate and enjoys nearly perfect weather. Its daytime temperatures along the coasts generally range from only the mid-70s to the mid-80s most of the year. Maui is the only state in the U.S. that has never recorded a sub-zero temperature.

Since Maui has only two seasons-Summer (May through October) and Winter (November through April), you will experience more temperature variation between elevations and windward-leeward coasts, than you will between the seasons.

Maui coastal temperatures can sometimes dip into the 60s during mid-winter and rise into to the 90s in mid-summer. Maui's heaviest rains occur during winter-month storms, often riding Kona winds, which uncharacteristically blow from the southeast. Flash flooding is not uncommon at such times. Hurricane season in Maui is June through November. Hurricanes are rare, occurring only about once every 10 years.

Maui's Beneficial Geography

Located between 19 and 23 degrees north latitude, the inhabited Hawaiian Islands lie only 1,200 to 1,600 miles north of the equator. This fortuitous circumstance of geography means the sun is high in the sky year round, creating temperatures that warm both the land and the surrounding ocean, which varies in temperature from only about 75 degrees to 83 degrees between winter and summer.

Such a warm surrounding ocean keeps the atmosphere above the Hawaiian Islands relatively warm. But two other factors contribute to Maui's reputation as a tropical paradise with diverse microclimates: Maui's trade winds, and Maui's numerous volcanic mountains.

Maui Volcanic Mountains

The mountains of Maui, formed millions of years ago though volcanic eruptions from the ocean floor - as the Pacific Plate moves slowly northwest over a hot spots in the earth's mantle - affect Maui's climate and account for the variations in weather from both island to island and on the same Island.

Maui Trade Winds

In Maui, the northeast trade winds, averaging 12 mph, occur about 90% of the time in the summer and about 50% of the time in the winter. They keep humidity at a minimum and ensure moderate temperatures, especially on the windward, unlike other tropical islands closer to the equator.

These cooling winds are created because warm air rises near the equator, flows northward through the upper atmosphere, and cools. Because it becomes heavier as it cools, it falls back to the earth's surface at about 30 degrees latitude, where it flows back toward the equator to replace more rising warm air. This creates cool breezes moving from the northeast to the southwest along the ocean's surface, and over the Hawaiian Islands.
