Weather in August

August is the last stop of the summer season in Rhode Island with warm to hot conditions. The days are long, and the weather is humid in the coastal region. Day high temperatures are in the 78°F (25.6°C) to 82°F (27.8°C), while nights are comfortable in the 59°F (15°C) to 64°F (17.8°C). Westerly in the southwest registers between 62°F (16.7°C) to 79°F (26.1°C) and is usually cooler than the surrounding regions. August has partly cloudy skies with seven to eight sunny days in the month.
The weather is perfect for getting on the water, either by way of cruises, boats, surfing, or swimming. Martha's Vineyard is a fantastic trip during late summer with plenty of clams, lobsters, and other seafood to satiate appetites. Increased humidity levels and hot weather are conducive for hay fever. Pollen allergies can make the conditions uncomfortable for a few people. New England weather always carries an element of surprise for tourists. The heat decreases gradually by the end of August in Rhode Island.
