Maui Climate & Weather

Maui Climate and Weather

Maui is a tropical island with a fairly mild year-round climate tempered by the Pacific Ocean. At sea level the average afternoon winter temperature is around 75°F (24°C) during the coldest months of December and January. August and September are the hottest summer months with average temperatures of about 86°F (30°C). Like most volcanic tropical islands, however, many different micro-climates mean packing for a variety of conditions: swim suits and light hot-weather clothing for the beaches, a lightweight windbreaker for the occasional shower at higher elevations, and more serious protection during inclement conditions when hiking Haleakala.
