Subject Rain and rainfall -- Hawaii -- Diurnal variations. Clouds -- Hawaii -- Diurnal variations.
Description Maps of diurnal rainfall patterns based on hourly rainfall records are presented for the six major Hawaiian islands. The resulting rainfall distributions demonstrate the complexity of the interaction between trade winds and large islands. Distributions for windward stations on the low islands have early morning maxima common to the tradewind rainfall over open oceans. Mesoscale circulations and moisture extraction by windward mountain barriers modify the oceanic pattern, particularly on the...
