Most of our rain comes at night – after you go to bed, and stops soon after the sun comes up. That’s not to say we don’t have extreme rain as well – we do. We can get two weeks straight of driving rain. But most of the time, it’s pretty nice days. We say… “if you don’t like the weather where you are, drive 5 miles or wait 5 minutes” (because our weather is extremely localized). One exception to this is the very appropriately named “Shower Drive”… where it seems to always be raining, regardless of how sunny it is just a mile away. Edit: Why is “town” in quotes, and what is CDP? The downtowns name is literally “Hilo Town”. Log in to Reply A bit misleading…68.6% annual sunshine according to this list is good for #25. You do realize there are **thousands** of other cities in the country right? Which would mean Hilo is actually quite close to the top of the list. Not sure how accurate it is at the top either. St. Petersburg, FL (aka the “Sunshine City”) has on average 361 days of sunshine per year. According to Nat Geo, it also owns the Guinness world record for consecutive days of sunshine in a row (768 between Feb. 1967 and March 1969) Log in to Reply one side of Maui is like tropical jungle / deserted island vibes. the other side looks like you are on the moon..
