August is delectably warm in Michigan with long days and dry conditions across the state. The average temperatures in the state are in the zone of 50°F (10°C) to 82°F (27.8°C), with 7 hours of daily sunshine. The precipitation is to the tune of 3" (76mm) to 4" (102mm), and mostly in the form of thunderstorms and occasional showers. The growing season is at a high with frost-free soil, moderate rainfall, and temperate conditions. Light summer clothing is suitable during the day, but cover the lower body during the evenings. The fishing season is in full swing, and the hunting season is at its peak in the temperate weather. There is rarely a lovely time as August to set sail on one of the schooners and get away from the city lights. Bike an urban trail on a fine Sunday morning for an experience of nature in the city. August is a highly desirable time to visit Michigan, but be prepared to spend more on accommodations.
