What’s the weather like in Sicily in August?
As the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily has a typical Mediterranean climate with long, hot summers and short, cool winters. In August, Sicily is hot and sunny, ideal for relaxing on the beautiful beaches, swimming in the clear blue seas or exploring the island further inland. It’s the height of the season at this time of year, so resorts will be at their busiest in August.
Sicily is hot over the month of August, with average highs of 30°C in the peak of the day and lows of 19°C after dark. With such high temperatures during the day, you’ll need to stay safe by seeking shade between 11am and 3pm, wearing plenty of sun cream and staying well hydrated. Around 15mm of rain’s expected over the course of the month so it’s unlikely wet weather will affect your stay. The Mediterranean waters are a beautifully warm 27°C, perfect for swimming and snorkelling.
