Clearwater Beach Weather in August

Averages By Month

August is the hottest month in Clearwater Beach with average highs of 87°F. The Gulf of Mexico is at its warmest now with a water temperature of 85°F - perfect for enjoying the incredibly beautiful beach and diving into the water to cool down! Even temperature lows are at a hot 80°F but you will get some showers which can help you cool down. There are 13 rainy days in August on average but the sun still shines for 8 hours each day as the rain clouds tend to pass quickly. Note though that in mid-August the hurricane season peaks so do take some care and check the weather before you travel!

If you are looking for some entertainment besides enjoying the beach, we can highly recommend a trip to the Florida Botanical Gardens and the next door Heritage Village, where you can view historical homes, schools, shops and much more. Best of all- entrance to both is free!

Best Time to Visit Clearwater Beach

Located in the subtropical climate zone, Clearwater Beach offers hot summers and mild temperatures for the rest of the year. In Winter daytime highs are around 70°F, lows are in the high 50s F and it hardly ever rains.

In spring temperatures are in the pleasant 70s F and the Gulf water has also reached swimming temperatures. In summer it gets very hot, in the mid 80s F, with the humidity making it feel even warmer. It does rain quite a bit too in summer and the peak of the hurricane season is from mid-August to September.

And finally, in fall temperatures get more pleasant in the low 80s F again, humidity and rain reduces and the water is still beautifully warm in the low 80s F. There might still be some storms passing through in fall though.

So given the really nice weather conditions all year round, it’s hard to say when the best time to visit is - maybe it’s better to flip it and say that it might NOT be the best time to visit from July until September given the rain, humidity and slight hurricane risk.

Things to know about Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach has been ranked the No. 1 beach in the United States by TripAdvisor. The beaches are wide and endless in length and uniquely white due to the sand’s origins in the mountains rather than shells from the sea. You should experience it to judge the beauty for yourself! Clearwater is a beach vacation destination that’s ideal for families. It offers lovely restaurants and bars but for more intense nightlife you should take a trip to the nearby St. Petersburg or Tampa.
