My girlfriend and I had a two-week holiday booked in Honolulu for next July and canceled those plans because there are so many great things to do in the summer where we live that we've decided not to travel anymore at that time of year.

We're thinking of re-booking a Hawaiin timeshare holiday for roughly the first two weeks of November next year, possibly a week in Oahu and a week on another island, and were wondering about the weather at that time of year?

Any comments appreciated. We could move our dates to earlier in the fall or even to the following spring if the weather is a lot better at that time of year. (Winter we're busy skiing, so that's out.)

Hawaii has beautiful weather year round, with more rain in the winter. The Avg. temp in Hawaii is only 7 degrees lower in the winter than in the summer, however they do have a rainy season that starts in November. Whale migration also starts in November. Also - each island has a dry side and a wet side - you can decrease your chance of rain by staying on the dry side.

The rainy season in Hawaii starts sometime after the first of October, and runs until about the end of March. But that doesn't mean those are bad months to visit the Islands. It only means rain is more likely, or perhaps may be heavier than during the height of Summer.

Depending on the activities you plan, rain may or may not be an issue. I find it refreshing when it rains In Hawaii, since everything is washed clean again, and even the air smells different. Just plan ahead for changeable weather, and have alternate activity plans in case of steady rain, and things will be fine. Chances are very good that during the first part of November the weather will be nice, with only occasional showers. And since the trade winds blow all the time, the rain clouds usually move on fairly quickly. If a shower happens, step under cover (or not) for a few minutes till it's done. Then head back out and continue your day.

Having said that, consider that the temperatures in Hawaii don't vary by all that much between any of the four seasons. Depending on where in the Islands you're located, daytime temps are usually between about 70F and 90F, at the extreme. Normal temps are usually in the mid-80s. So it's never THAT bad, regardless of time of year. Factor in the possibility of rainfall, and it's easy to have a great time. It's rare that you'd encounter a week-long downpour of steady rain.

For what it's worth: I used to live in Hawaii, and I love to vacation there. My next visit there will be a week on Kauai during the last week of November, specifically planned because the crowds wll be down, and I like the weather variety. I expect it will rain some, and be mostly sunny, which is just fine with me. It's Hawaii! :cheer:

Have fun,
Dave

I've gone in early November and we had one full day of rain that happened to coincide with our West Maui mountain hike, so it didn't really interfere with our plans.

If you can wait til the week after Thanksgiving, you'll have a better chance to see the whales. They really are awesome.

We were married in November on Maui. It was sunny most of the week and poured rain on the day after we got married. We usually go in November and love it :) . Sometimes it does get windy. One year, we went in December and had better weather than any other time we can remember (and we've been going there for the past 19 years). I would say that any time is a great time to go to Hawaii. Oh, we were on Maui in February 1989 and it rained for 8 out of 10 days. We had a great time anyhow! Best snorkeling we can remember :whoopie: !
