There are essentially two seasons on Oahu, warm and warmer. The warmer summer season runs from May through October, with temperatures reaching around 84 F.
During the rest of the year, temperatures mostly remain around a delightful 72 F. The higher elevations, such as the Upper Manoa Valley north of Honolulu, receive much more rain than the beaches. The eastern side of the island is lusher and receives more rain, while Honolulu and Waikiki tend to be drier. November through March, Oahu’s rainy season, as well as the summertime months, are considered peak season.
