December is pleasant in Midway Island, with the average temperatures in the 65°F (18.3°C) to 73°F (22.8°C) range. Sixteen wet days in the month accumulate an average of 4.1" (104mm) of rainfall. There is no shortage of daylight with at least 11 hours of daily sunshine. The skies are partly cloudy in the afternoons when the chance of rain is the highest of the day. The few visitors that tour the island have ample time at their disposal to study the natural habitat or to take a dip in the lagoon and experience the fantastic underwater world. Keep in mind that the tropical cyclone season lasts well until December, and a raging storm is no surprise in the tropical Pacific islands. A rain jacket over light and comfortable clothes are sufficient to counter wet conditions. A tour in December to Midway Island is like a long-cherished dream come true for the interested few.
