One of the most frequent questions I get is, “How’s the weather in (place) in (month/season)?” Since I’m not a meteorologist and I don’t have a photographic memory, I always head right to Weatherbase to make my friends think that I’m a weather guru.
What’s great about Weatherbase is that it tells users what weather and climate averages are for a particular location in a very detailed manor. And it’s just not for wide areas; it’s for very specific locations. For example, for the state of Hawaii you’ll find hundreds of locations to choose from, from Aakukui to Whitmore Village. In total the site has data on 41,997 cities worldwide, which you can access using either a search box or an interactive map.
For each place, you’ll see, by month: average temperatures (high and low), precipitation, average number of days with precipitation, highest recorded temperature, average length of day, average number of days above 90ºF/32ºC, average number of rainy days, most rain reported in a month, average relative humidity (including average morning and evening relative humidity, average dew point, and average wind speed. Weatherbase also gives current conditions and even lists the elevation, latitude and longitude.
Obviously, like anyone Weatherbase can’t guarantee the weather, but it sure is helpful when you’re planning a vacation.
