Rainfall Atlas of Hawaiʻi

This site offers interactive and downloadable maps showing detailed values and spatial patterns of monthly and annual rainfall for the major Hawaiian Islands.

The Hawaiian Islands have one of the most diverse topographic patterns on Earth. As a result, the islands can experience dramatic differences in mean rainfall over short distances. Knowledge of the mean rainfall patterns is critically important for a variety of resource management issues, including groundwater and surface water development and protection, controlling and eradicating invasive species, protecting and restoring native ecosystems, and planning for the effects of global warming.
