The State of Hawaii is made up of an island chain that extends for about about 1600 mi. between the island of Hawaii in the southeast and Kure Island in the northwest. The state has a total area of 6459 sq mi, including 36 sq mi. of inland water. It is the fourth smallest state. The mean elevation is about 3030 ft.

Nearly all of the state’s total area is accounted for by eight main islands, which are from east to west Hawaii, Maui, Kahoolawe, Lanai, Molokai, Oahu, Kauai, and Niihau. Northwestward from the main islands extends a long string of islets, coral reefs, and shoals. The largest of these is Laysan, which covers only about 1000 acres. These landforms are either uninhabited or are sparsely populated by people staffing government facilities.

The state of Hawaii is not coextensive with the geographical unit called the Hawaiian Islands, or Hawaiian Chain. The inhabited Midway Islands, in the northwest, are not part of the state but are administered by the U.S. government. The atoll of Palmyra, an island southwest of the main islands, was part of the Territory of Hawaii but was specifically excluded from the state when statehood was achieved in 1959. It remains a U.S. territory.

Average temperatures range between 72° and 79° F throughout the year at low elevations. Lowland temperatures vary only a few degrees from month to month and rarely more than 10° F from day to day. Extreme temperatures rarely occur. Daytime temperatures hardly ever rise above 95° F, and temperatures below freezing are practically unknown at elevations of less than 4000 ft. Weather conditions above 8200 ft can be quite severe, especially during the winter months.

Traditional Hawaiian seasons may be generally classified into two periods. Kau, or the summer period, normally lasts from mid-April until mid-October; ho‘oilo, or the winter season, usually lasts from mid-October to mid-April. Although mild by the standards of temperate areas, the winter season is characterized by slightly lower temperatures than those that occur during the summer, and by frontal or cyclonic storms that can bring strong northerly winds and much rainfall to some areas of the islands.
