Rain in August?

Hi,

Hoping to visit in later August for 3-4 days. How rainy is it really? Is it rainy days on end, all day long, an hour here and there,... (Not worried about Hurricanes.)

Thanks!

Your answer is that it can be all of the above. The usual is a passing afternoon shower, somewhere on the island, if it rains at all.

cafish2000,

I’m thinking of visiting NYC for 3-4 days in Aug. Is it going to rain? Will it be a morning shower or could I get a whole day of rain? I’m thinking of visiting Central Park on a Tuesday. Will it be so hot that city officials issue a heat warning that day or just normal summer heat?

These kind of responses are not helpful and border on nasty. If you don’t like the question just ignore it. It’s not like monitoring trip advisor is your job.

I travel to the islands regularly in summertime. Here’s what I tell folks. It beats the subway in August. Weather in the islands is highly changeable rain showers can pass through. Usually quick, but sometimes not. It will be hot and humid but the best cooling off is steps away in the warm tranquil sea. I don’t think you will be disappointed if you decide to make the trip!

August can be very hot in NYC and frequently heat advisories are issued. Rain in the PM is common as the heat builds through the day and rises up from all the concrete and asphalt. Central Park is a lovely oasis from the City center. I hope you enjoy your trip.....See it’s easy to be nice.

saliorgirlnyc, so what you’re saying is that the weather on random days a few months from now could be basically anything: oppressively hot, raining, or sunny? Thank you so much for explaining that so politely!

I nominate you to answer all future unanswerable questions about weather weeks/months from now that get asked every few days on this forum. Clearly you have a knack for politely explaining that nobody has a clue.
