Mombasa Weather August Averages, Kenya
Whta's The Weather Like In Mombasa In August
Conditions in Mombasa during August are very similar to what they were in July. The only real difference is another small drop in average monthly precipitation as well as another slight decrease in sea surface temperatures. By this time of the year, sea surface temperatures are as 'cold' as they will get across the year. While still fairly warm, it may be just cool enough to keep a few souls out of the water, especially on a rainy day.
The average water temperature for this time of the year is 25°C (77°F), the annual low. After this month, sea surface temperatures will once again rise.
On land, temperatures are nearly identical to the previous month. The average overnight low of 20°C (68°F) is cool enough for vacationers to need a light jacket. However, shorts and short sleeves can still be worn later in the day as average afternoon highs climb to 27°C (81°F). Overall, the average daily temperature is 24°C (74°F) warmer than some destinations receive even during their summer months!
Once again the amount of precipitation declines for the third month in a row. 70mm of precipitation is expected for the month falling across an average of 12 days. The overall chance of rain is 32 percent, so visitors will want to consult a forecast before leaving home in order to prepare for any inclement weather.
The chance of a sunny day is 21 percent, but overall, visitors can also expect to see an average of 7 hours of sunshine. Wind also diminishes greatly during this time of the year with the chance of seeing a windy day standing at only 7 percent. Visitors may want to see how the region compares to others for this time of the year and also keep in mind that winter is wrapping up in this part of the Southern Hemisphere during this month.
