I will be spending 3 or 4 days in and near Edinburgh at the end of August into September. I've looked up historical weather data for those days on Weather Underground and it looks like there's a 60%+ chance of rainy weather (they didn't show rainfall totals in the data table). I'm just wondering if there's a particular sort of rainy weather that's more typical for that time of year. Can I expect torrential downpours, constant drizzle or mist, brief showers, or some combination of all of the above?
I plan to spend one day going out to Siccar Point, on the coast, if that makes a difference.
Should I plan on having full rain gear, just in case? I can handle a shower or two with just a windbreaker but would want to avoid getting thoroughly soaked. I will have boots for the hike to Siccar point.
Thank you in advance for your replies.
