Lanzarote Weather August

We’ve changed the format of our monthly weather reports as we now post a daily forecast during the weekdays on our Facebook page LanzaroteInformation.

Monumento al Campesino

Every year we forget that August tends to be hot but with cloudy starts to the day, these generally burn off by late morning for glorious afternoons. We didn’t have any heat alerts for temperatures over 30 degrees however we did have top twenties of 27- 29 degrees right through the month. We even had rain, again these light misty showers are typical of this time of year and soon pass with plenty of time for chilling on the beach in the sunshine. 


Check out the previous years weather reports during August:
