A fairly average August for Melbourne

A fairly average August for Melbourne

The temperature and rainfall were close to the long term average across the month of August in Victoria's capital.

Melbourne Olympic Park's rain guage collected 51.4mm, compared to the August average of 50mm. 

The combined mean maximum and minimum temperature across the month was within a tenth of a degree of the long term average of 10.8 degrees. Although, the average minimum temperature was around 0.7 degrees above average, the average maximum temperature was 0.5 degrees below average. 

Slightly above average cloud cover was the main driver of the warmer than average nights and marginally colder than average days.

August 2018 and 2017 were also quite close to the long term average in terms of temperatures and rainfall.
