The Island of Hawaii offers two seasons, but just barely. In the summer, temperatures average in the mid-80s, and in the “winter,” the average drops to the high 70s. Hurricane season, from June to November, rarely touches the islands, though unpredictable bouts of rain may occur, particularly on Hawaii's tropical Hilo side. August and February bring fewer tourists and lower prices. Throughout the year, the island's distinct climate zones enable travelers to experience sunshine, rain, and even snow in one visit.
