The Weather in August is fairly similar to that of July in as much as the days are still short, the rain is still falling and the temperatures are freezing!

The Average Temperatures for the Melbourne Climate in August are:

High: 14.9ºCelsius(58.820ºF) - Low: 6.6ºCelsius(43.880ºF)


Most Melbournians have gone indoors to sit by warm fires however there are quite a few brave souls who venture out to either play their favorite sport or if not play it then at least watch it.

Throughout the Melbourne weather in August the Australian Rules Football season is in full swing, with the top teams fighting to get into the finals held in September.

And Don't Forget To Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
