What’s the weather like in Budapest in August?
Budapest weather in August is very pleasant with high temperatures lasting throughout the month and into September. There’s still a high chance of rain, but showers tend to be light and fast, so it won’t get in the way of your holiday.
Located in Hungary, Budapest enjoys a continental climate which means the region gets cool weather in the winter and quite a lot of annual rainfall. Thunderstorms are more common in the summer because the rainfall is heavier and rising temperatures seem to fuel the storms. However, strong winds and heavy downpours can be avoided with a visit to the museum or a shopping spree in the local shopping centre.
August has an average temperature of 21°C with highs of 27°C. You can expect cooler weather at night when winds help to bring temperatures down to a comfortable 15°C. You’ll have 13 hours of sunshine each day, which is an hour less than July. Heavy showers are more likely to fall over ten days with an average rainfall of 70mm. Humidity levels remain low but there can be some cloud coverage towards the end of the month and on rainy days.
