Weather .com is usually not accurate for Hawaii weather. I recommend going to www.hawaiiweathertoday.com, and click on the island you are visiting, then the part of the island you are staying. This gives you the official National Weather Service forecast in a user friendly format. Note that even on the nicest day they will often list the chance of rain at 20%. That is not a concern, as that is for the whole region you are checking on. Also, some regions have temperature ranges. The warmest temps are on the beach at sea level, and the coolest are upcountry. Relax, the weather should be fine. Have a great trip!

There is a post on here complaining about the resort area in Kohala--that it is a 'lava desert.' Well, parts are lava and the hills are covered with golden grasses. That's because this is the dryest part of the west side! Francis Brown and the alii before him chose this site and they got first pick and picked a place with great weather. Most times when we are in South Kona it will staart to rain and as we drive up we see the rain stopping around Kiholo.

The "wet side" Kohala is much different and it rains a lot more there--go on over and see the change as you get to Hawi.
