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.
