Aruba Weather August Averages, Aruba
What's the Weather Like in Aruba in August
August is a really hot time for Aruba, as the summer is still going strong and the weather continues to be as pleasant as possible. You will see a lot of heat at this time of year, as demonstrated by the fact that the average daily temperature is still 29°C the same as it was in May, and the same as it will continue to be until October! The temperature in certain parts of the island are a little cooler, like Eagle Beach. This long, blissful summer is also part of the dry season, at least for this month. With little rain and high temperatures, you are likely to enjoy sunbathing but be aware of protecting your skin. You may also want to wear a hat and sunglasses as often as possible, to avoid the risk of heatstroke or strained eyes.
The daily average high temperature is 31°C, which is very warm indeed, and even with the lowest points of the day you will only reach an average of 26°C. This makes for a very pleasant climate, though be aware that the heat can sometimes build up into a tropical storm. The good news is that with it being dry still, there is not as much risk of that happening: only around 4 days will see rainfall this month, with an overall precipitation of 10mm which is hardly anything at all! Each shower will be over almost before it has even begun.
The average sea temperature also remains steady this month, continuing on at 28°C. If you want to swim in the hottest water possible, wait until next month, when you can see a rise of 1 degree. Always check the weather forecast before you go out in the morning, to be sure that your day will not be interrupted by rain or high winds if you want to spend some time out on the beach.
