History[edit] In ancient times, Lihue was a minor village. Līhuʻe means "cold chill" in the Hawaiian language.[2][3] Lihue is located in the ancient district of Puna, the southeastern coast of the island, and land division (ahupuaʻa) of Kalapaki.[4] Royal Governor Kaikioʻewa officially made it his governing seat in 1837, moving it from Waimea;[5] he gave the town its name after the land he owned on Oahu by the same name. With the emergence of the sugar industry in the 1800s, Lihue became the central city of the island with the construction of a large sugar mill. Early investors were Henry A. Peirce, Charles Reed Bishop and William Little Lee. The plantation struggled until William Harrison Rice built the first irrigation system in 1856.[6] Subsequent plantation owner Paul Isenberg helped German people emigrate to Lihue starting in 1881, with the first Lutheran church in Hawaii founded in 1883.[7] Services were delivered in German well into the 1960s. By the 1930s, George Norton Wilcox became one of the largest sugarcane plantation owners, buying Grove Farm from Hermann A. Widemann.[8] The Wilcox family home, Kilohana, has been converted into a restaurant and gift shop. The surrounding plantation now grows crops and livestock. A narrow gauge tourist railroad with vintage diesel locomotives from Whitworth and General Electric offers tours of the plantation; horse-drawn carriage tours are offered as well. The grounds are also the site of luaus, many of which are offshore excursions booked through NCL America. Lihue also houses the Kauai Museum, which details the history of Kauai.[9]

Geography and climate[edit] Air thermography, 1929 to 2012 According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 7.1 square miles (18 km2), of which, 6.3 square miles (16 km2) of it is land and 0.8 square miles (2.1 km2) of it (11.11%) is water. Lihue has a tropical wet and dry climate zone (Köppen classification As) with a relatively dry summer season.[10] The normal monthly mean temperature ranges from 71.6 °F (22.0 °C) in February to 79.7 °F (26.5 °C) in August. On average, there are 7.7 nights annually with a low below 60 °F (16 °C), and readings of 90 °F (32 °C) or higher are quite rare, occurring on average once every eight years. Temperature records range from 46 °F (8 °C) on January 14, 1930 up to only 91 °F (33 °C) as recently as October 9, 2012. The record cool daily maximum is 67 °F (19 °C) as recently as December 19, 1981, while, conversely, the record warm daily minimum is 80 °F (27 °C) as recently as September 13, 2015.[11] Normal annual rainfall is 37.05 inches (941 mm) spread over an average 195 days, but observed annual rainfall has ranged from 16.40 to 74.40 inches (417 to 1,890 mm) in 1983 and 1982, respectively. The wettest month on record is March 2006 with 36.13 inches (918 mm), while the most rain to occur in a single calendar day is 15.81 inches (402 mm) on May 13, 1940. The record driest month is February 1983 with trace amounts.[11] Climate data for Lihue Airport, Hawaii (1981–2010 normals,[a] extremes 1905–present)[b] Month Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Year Record high °F (°C) 87 (31) 89 (32) 88 (31) 88 (31) 88 (31) 89 (32) 91 (33) 90 (32) 91 (33) 91 (33) 89 (32) 89 (32) 91 (33) Mean maximum °F (°C) 82.7 (28.2) 82.3 (27.9) 82.4 (28) 82.2 (27.9) 83.7 (28.7) 84.7 (29.3) 86.0 (30) 86.6 (30.3) 86.9 (30.5) 86.1 (30.1) 84.1 (28.9) 82.6 (28.1) 87.6 (30.9) Average high °F (°C) 78.0 (25.6) 77.8 (25.4) 78.4 (25.8) 79.2 (26.2) 81.2 (27.3) 83.3 (28.5) 84.2 (29) 84.7 (29.3) 84.8 (29.3) 83.4 (28.6) 80.8 (27.1) 78.8 (26) 81.2 (27.3) Daily mean °F (°C) 71.7 (22.1) 71.6 (22) 72.7 (22.6) 74.0 (23.3) 75.8 (24.3) 78.1 (25.6) 79.1 (26.2) 79.7 (26.5) 79.4 (26.3) 78.1 (25.6) 75.8 (24.3) 73.2 (22.9) 75.77 (24.31) Average low °F (°C) 65.5 (18.6) 65.5 (18.6) 67.0 (19.4) 68.8 (20.4) 70.4 (21.3) 73.0 (22.8) 74.1 (23.4) 74.6 (23.7) 74.1 (23.4) 72.9 (22.7) 70.8 (21.6) 67.6 (19.8) 70.4 (21.3) Mean minimum °F (°C) 58.3 (14.6) 58.1 (14.5) 59.7 (15.4) 63.0 (17.2) 64.4 (18) 69.0 (20.6) 70.2 (21.2) 70.6 (21.4) 69.2 (20.7) 66.9 (19.4) 64.3 (17.9) 59.9 (15.5) 56.4 (13.6) Record low °F (°C) 46 (8) 47 (8) 47 (8) 51 (11) 54 (12) 59 (15) 59 (15) 60 (16) 59 (15) 55 (13) 51 (11) 50 (10) 46 (8) Average rainfall inches (mm) 3.75 (95.3) 3.16 (80.3) 4.61 (117.1) 2.25 (57.2) 2.07 (52.6) 1.61 (40.9) 1.87 (47.5) 2.13 (54.1) 2.12 (53.8) 3.82 (97) 4.46 (113.3) 5.20 (132.1) 37.05 (941.1) Average rainy days (≥ 0.01 inch) 13.1 12.1 15.3 16.6 14.2 17.2 19.4 18.3 16.3 17.2 17.6 17.5 194.8 Average relative humidity (%) 76.1 75.4 75.3 75.2 74.9 73.5 73.9 74.0 74.1 76.2 76.8 76.5 75.2 Mean monthly sunshine hours 176.2 181.7 206.5 202.8 243.6 248.3 257.9 263.3 242.1 207.7 161.4 160.7 2,552.2 Percent possible sunshine 52 57 55 53 60 61 62 66 66 58 48 48 58 Source: NOAA (relative humidity and sun 1961−1990)[11][12][13]
