Weather in August

We are planning a trip to Key West during the first week of August. How's the weather? Looking at previous years, wunderground shows rain most days. Is it all day rain, or just a brief Florida downpour?

Our first trip was in August. Hottttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt. But lot's of fun if you can take the heat and humidity. We found out first hand about the everyday forecasts of rain. Riding the scooter one morning and it started pouring. Stopped and ate breakfast and it was gone. Turned into a beautiful day. That's typical. Have a great time.

You can expect a short T-storm or rain shower, not an all day rain, even then it's not unusual for only part of the island to get rain. It can be hot but it's also less crowded and nights are ver comfortable.

Be aware August is the Hurricane Season. While we have been lucky for many years, it is a possibility. You might want to consider trip insurance.

Trip insurance is always a good idea (you never know what might happen) but since hurricane season lasts half the year (June 1 - November 30), I certainly wouldn't worry about it otherwise.

We've enjoyed our August visits to Key West and one of the most fun times we had was a rainy early afternoon spent at Schooner Wharf Bar. It only rained for a couple hours (long by summer rain shower standards in Florida) and when it was over we biked back to the condo to meet our son for lunch. We later heard about all the streets that were flooded that day. We didn't have a clue. lol
