Accuweather/Cruising weather from Long Beach to Hawaii


My family is going on a cruise from LA to Hawaii for the next 2 weeks and want to take appropriate clothing - how do we know what the weather will be like?

The normal high and low temperatures during this period near LA are in the mid to upper 60s by day and the mid 40s at night.
In Hawaii, the normals are about 80 and 66.
Keep in mind that these are the NORMAL TEMPERATURES. They can certainly be cooler or warmer than this, depending on the pattern. The greatest potential variability away from normal would be closer to the CA coast.
When you are out over the ocean, the temperatures will range somewhere in between the two extremes, and will be cooler when you're near CA and warmer as you get closer to HI.

Hopefully, this helped!
