Wild Weather at 10,023 feet on the Haleakala Shield Volcano

By: Christina Loren

The summit of Haleakala is 10,023 feet above sea level and a stunning location to watch the sunrise. Haleakala is a shield volcano and formed over 75 percent of the island of Maui. The weather at the summit of Haleakala changes rapidly and on any given day the weather can vary dramatically from sunny and hot to rainy and cool in a matter of minutes. There is typically a 30º difference between temperatures at the summit of Haleakala vs. the temperature on the coast. Rain is common on the volcano so if you plan on visiting it is a good idea to prepare for a variety of differing weather conditions and rain gear as well as sun glasses will likely serve you well on the same trip.
