Weather in August

August lies during the summer and has average high temperatures slightly below the 90°F (32.2°C) mark over the state. It is generally wet with 6" (152mm) of rain across the state, but more significantly, it is prone to hurricanes and tornadoes.
La Nina summers produce dry summers, are susceptible to wildfires, and an increase in hurricane activity. Florida is one of the most vulnerable states concerning tropical storms, and there is seldom a year in which the storms do not impact the state.
The Florida Panhandle area is a little cooler compared to the south as nights in DeFuniak Springs drop to a comfortable 70°F (21.1°C) in August.
Try to avoid the open beaches in the south as the intensity and number of storms often grow during summer and early fall season that will rule out afternoons and evenings on the beaches. One important thing is to be cautious concerning electronic gadgets, as lightning strikes are frequent - stick to the general guidelines, while operating them during stormy weather!
