El Nino to keep East Hawaii dry this winter!
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Thursday that El Nino, the warming of tropical Pacific waters that affect weather worldwide, is expected to last into the spring.
This is unfortunate news for West Hawaii farmers, as they have already been experiencing an extreme drought for over a year. What may not be good news for the farmers, is great news for travelers to Hawaii though!
For anyone considering a visit to Maui or the Big Island this winter, you can feel comfortable knowing this statewide drier-than-normal conditions will be here through May!!
This is especially good news for East Hawaii, traditionally considered the "wet side" of the island, and sometimes a concern for visitors to the Hilo and Kapoho areas.
So worry no more! There are still some fantastic vacation rental homes in Kapoho available to fit every budget, so check out the specials by visiting the Big Island Vacation Rentals website.
We can set you up within a short walk to the Kapoho tidepools, or in a place with your own private swimming lagoon! Plus we have several homes right on the infamous Champagne Pond!!
