In January the weather in Hawaii is really pleasant during most years. The temperature fluctuates from a very comfortable 19°C (66°F) to 27°C (81°F) as the highs, most of time hovering around 23°C (73°F). It is partly cloudy for the month on average – about 50% cloudy. Half the time will be moderate to heavy clouds and overcast, and the other half very light clouds or no clouds at all. Light rain will fall one out of five days on average, and there isn’t typically more than 10-15% heavy or severe rainfall during the entire month. Wind is typically light and out of the Northeast.

If you’re wondering whether January would be a good time to visit Hawaii – it is definitely a good time! Only very occasionally is it actually cold in the mornings – where you can breathe fog. It doesn’t happen often, but you might get to experience it. It occurs about once every 4-5 years.
