What’s the weather like in Marrakech in August?
Marrakech is in North Africa close to the Sahara Desert which means you’ll have scorching temperatures if you’re going in August. Marrakech does get some rain because it’s in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, although there’s hardly any in August. Although Marrakech is a city, there aren’t extreme levels of humidity making it still comfortable to explore.
If you like the heat then Marrakech is perfect for you in August which has a typical high of 38ºC.
