Additional Physical Format: Online version: Wentworth, Chester Keeler, Geographic variation in annual rainfall on Oahu. Honolulu: University of Hawaii, Geographic variation in annual rainfall on Oahu.

By Chester Keeler Wentworth. The records of 13 stations on Oahu for a period of 35 years were used and measures of geographic variation determined for similar and near-by pairs of stations as well as for dissimilar and remote pairs. In general, probable geographic variations for any year are Author: Chester Keeler Wentworth.

US Dept of Commerce National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Weather Service Honolulu, HI Correa Rd Suite Honolulu, HI The geographic variation of the main climatic variables, surface temperature and precipitation, and their seasonal variation are strongly connected to the energy balance (Figure 6).

A study of the variation in annual rainfall of Oahu Island (Hawaiian Islands) based on the law of probabilities.

Monthly Weather Review As a result, this is the only area in Hawaiʻi with an afternoon rainfall peak, and with more rain in the summer than other seasons (see mean monthly rainfall at Kona station Honaunau, right).

Changes in Hawaiʻi Rainfall. The maps comprising the Rainfall Atlas of Hawaiʻi depict average rainfall for the year period ending in The weather on Oahu doesn’t change much throughout the year, and the island really only has two seasons (winter and summer). In general, Oahu is usually much drier on the west side of the island (the leeward side) than the east side (the windward side), so you will find most of the greener landscape along the coastal areas to the one of the two states in the U.S.

that doesn’t. The annual precipitation totals are averages based on weather data collected from to for the NOAA National Climatic Data Center. You can jump to a separate table for each island: Hawaii Big Island, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai and Oahu.

Hawaii Big Island. means that, by naming the mean annual rainfall, anyone can predict, on the average, within a range of 30 per cent. One means of improving estimate is offered through a recent study of geographic variation (Went­ worth, ). In this paper it is shown that if the rainfall of near-by, similar sta­ tions for the same year is known, the prob­.

The American state of Hawaii, which covers the Hawaiian Islands, is tropical but it experiences many different climates, depending on altitude and surrounding. The island of Hawaii for example hosts 4 (out of 5 in total) climate groups on a surface as small as 4, square miles (10, km 2) according to the Köppen climate types: tropical, arid, temperate and polar.

In Hilo, 3, millimeters ( inches) of rain fall per year, without there being a dry month: June is the "driest" month with mm ( in) of rain, while the rainiest is November, with mm ( in).

Here is the average precipitation in Hilo. Figure 5: Time series of Hawaii Rainfall Index (HRI) for – as derived from 27 long-term gauges from Kaua‘i, O‘ahu, and Hawai‘i. This index represents rainfall variations over different climate regions of the Hawaiian Islands.

Hawaii is an archipelago made up of eight main islands, seven of which are inhabited. The largest island by area is the island of Hawaii, also known as the Big Island, while the largest by population is Oahu.

Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 62°F to 82°F and is rarely below 59°F or above 85°F. Based on the tourism score, the best times of year to visit Hawaiian Ocean View for warm-weather activities are from early April to.

This map shows the annual rainfall levels (in inches) for various locations over the island of Oahu. As the previous animation revealed, high precipitation levels are closely tied to rising air moving up a mountain.

Pacific Disaster Center: Annual precipitation in inches for selected locations on Oahu. Extreme geographic variations in rainfall in Hawaii pose a problem of finding a simple parameter of rain­ fall which will be descriptive of both rainfall amounts and distribution. With a view to developing such a parameter, regression formulae are developed which relate mean monthly rainfall to mean annual rainfall.
