Cruising from LA to Hawaii in January 2013, what type of weather should we expect


It is too early to give you exact details on the weather during your cruise in January. By then, the jet stream has typically strengthened and has come farther south. That, in turn, can occasionally lead to storms in that part of the Pacific which would produce rain and gusty winds. However, the exact time window when you will be cruising may be very calm and tranquil with little or no rain and some sun each day. Your best bet is to check back with me about a week or so before your planned trip.
As for temperatures, typically it will be in the 60s by day and the upper 40s at night in the Los Angeles area at that time. In Hawaii, the normal temperatures range from near or just above 80 by day and in the mid 60s at night. Obviously, temperatures over the water will vary between the two extremes, depending on whether you are closer to CA or HI.
Hopefully this helped!
