Weather and Ocean Conditions
Lihue weather is generally very pleasant
throughout the year with temperatures in the mid to high 70s, a bit warmer in
the summer and a bit cooler during the winter months, with night time
temperatures typically dropping about five to ten degrees. Trade winds provide
a pleasant cooling effect. The west and south shores of Kauai are generally a
bit warmer and drier than the north and east shores due to the predominantly
northeast trending trade winds.
Ocean conditions vary through the seasons with
the east shore typically quite calm in the summer months and great for
snorkeling and other water activities. Winter months often bring high surf from
north swells which can also create strong currents. South swells sometimes
arrive during the summer months bringing bigger waves mainly along southern
coastlines. Some beaches are more protected from the open ocean and conditions
can change from day to day. For swimming and water sports it is best to visit
lifeguarded beaches and check with water safety personnel about the safest
places for the activities you choose.
