Weather in August

August in Azerbaijan is the last full month of summer, characterized by high temperatures, although slightly lower than the peak temperatures experienced in July. The heat remains intense in the lowland regions and along the Caspian Sea coastline.

In Baku, the capital city located along the Caspian Sea coast, August sees temperatures ranging from 28°C (82.4°F) to 31°C (87.8°F). This slight reduction from July does not detract from the overall heat of the Azerbaijani summer. Rainfall is sparse during August, with most days marked by clear skies and intense sunshine.

The high-altitude regions of the Greater Caucasus range, including cities such as Quba and Khinalug, experience temperatures averaging between 18°C (64.4°F) to 23°C (73.4°F). While these regions do not face the extreme heat of the lowlands, they are still noticeably warm compared to other months. The landscape continues to be dominated by the greenery of the summer months, with no snowfall occurring.

Regarding precipitation, August continues the trend of low rainfall levels set by July. It remains one of the driest months of the year, with the hot semi-arid climate evident in the lowland regions. Although the temperature begins to decline slightly from the peaks of July, the drop in rainfall is less pronounced, making August another warm and dry month.

Comparatively, September ushers in the autumn season, bringing with it a further reduction in temperatures and an increase in rainfall. This makes August the climactic end of the summer season in Azerbaijan, maintaining high temperatures and minimal rainfall.
