Kihei Weather is what you dream about when you envision a perfect day at the beach. The sun is king and the temperature is in the 80s almost everyday. This is where you will get the least amount of rain on Maui.
These fantastic weather conditions apply to the South Maui region in a whole, from Kihei to Wailea and Makena. But a few local variations can be observed.

Some parts of Wailea and Makena receive a little more rain. It's also true for the portion of the Kihei area that is located higher on the Haleakala slopes. Going upcountry quickly adds altitude and creates cooler temperature and moist air.
All in all, Maui leeward lowlands remain a rather dry region blessed by the sun.
An impressive cloud formation can be observed around Makena. If you look in the direction of Kahoolawe (the small island visible in the South-West) you may notice a strip of clouds going from Kahoolawe to the Haleakala crater summit. Even if a part of Big Beach can be slightly affected by this cloud formation, it's not likely to bring rain. Simply enjoy the view.
Here are the Kihei latest weather conditions and forecast. If the conditions don't seem too good, don't worry. The weather vary a lot locally and the forecasts are just not precise enough to give you the real picture.
Clouds are ruining your day at the beach?
Move to the next beach, a few kilometers away (or maybe a few meters away!). South Maui is full of great beaches and the sun is always shining on one of them.
