Climate of Edinburgh in august

The climate of Edinburgh in august is tolerable

Summer days in Scotland are characterized by relatively abundant rainfall. As the temperatures are slightly mild, barely warm, the weather in Edinburgh throughout August is far from ideal. In fact, one should expect many rainy days and only a few sunny days.

Edinburgh at the Beginning of August

Much of the beginning of the month is dominated by the rainy and relatively mild days that are rather numerous. As the mornings are often misty, the beautiful days entirely sunny are rare. For this reason, one must also rely on the cloudy but dry days to enjoy the good weather.

Edinburgh in the Middle of August

Climatic conditions in mid-August are virtually identical to those at the beginning of the month and translate into many rainy and mild days. Temperatures stagnate around 17° C, even at the best hours of day. However, it is preferable for people who are sensitive to freshness to wear a light sweater so that they can feel comfortable.

Edinburgh at the End of August

The climate throughout August in Edinburgh degrades even more, following the fall in temperatures which makes the days even cooler. Furthermore, due to the rains that continue to show at any time of the day, weather is hardly conducive to outdoor activities.
