How much does it rain on the Hawaiian Island?

Rainfall in Hawaii varies greatly between the islands. The greatest rain is at elevations between 300 and 3000 feet, and on the windward side of most of the Hawaiian islands. As the warm, moist air passes over the islands, it must rise and cool as it passes over the hills and mountains. As it cools, water condenses. Therefore, the amount of rain depends strongly on location. Hawaii's tropical rain may be very heavy at times. Usually the downpours of short duration, but during winter storms, serious flood occur near rivers on the windward side of islands.
