Weather In August

I've been to Savannah a few times, but never in late summer. Is the weather overbearingly hot and humid? It gets very humid and hot where I live, but we usually only have temps in the high 80's and low 90's at that time of year. Just wondering if it was like that in Savannah or not. Thanks!

Also, is rain a problem at that time of year?

August will be even more hot and humid than it is now. Today's heat index made outdoors feel like it was 102 degrees F.

We get a lot of late afternoon-early evening thunderstorms which drop rain almost each day in summer.

The weather paterns in Savannah are sub-tropical. The tempreture in Savannah during August is usually in the mid to upper 90's, and sometimes into the 100's. We also have a high heat index (heat + humidity) this time of year. The heat Index can often reach 115 degrees or higher. Usually, the heat and humidity will build and build throughout the day, and at around 5 pm or so there is often a brief but very strong thunder & lightning storm that tapers off in the evening. We usually consider August our "off-season". But, everyone here has

air-conditioning, and we have very very beautiful evenings. So, don't worry about the heat, you will have a great time.

Welcome to Savannah.

The secret is to not fight the sweating, give in to it, you will be sweaty from your first step outdoors in the morning until you lock yourself in yuor room at night. Just tell yourself it is cleansing. :)>
