Puna Weather

Even though Puna weather is not as diverse as the whole of the Big Island, where you can actually experience 10 out of 12 climate zones, it offers a lot of variety. The reason for that is that Puna stretches from sea level up to about 1700 feet. The lower areas are hot and dry, while the areas with higher elevations are cooler.

Puna weather could be characterized as tropical weather with great fluctuations in temperature according to location and elevation. Temperature differences from one area to another could be as much as 10 to 20°F.

What are the general tendencies of the Puna weather:

  • Warmest months: August and September
  • Coolest months: January, February, and March
  • Driest month: June
  • Wettest month: December

Monthly and annual rainfall is very unpredictable and rainfall on the east side of the Big Island can vary from year-to-year, (60 to 180 inches per year). Average rainfall is increased at higher elevations and in the northern part of the district.
