AT THEIR BEST IN AUGUST
August is the last full month of summer for much of the northern hemisphere. For many of the more northern reaches of the hemisphere, the weather is reaching a peak. The beach areas featured in this month’s lists will generally have their warmest waters of the year. On the other hand, the islands and lands of the sub-tropics will see increasing number of tropical storms, cloudy skies with frequent rains, and muggy temperatures.
For convenience in web-surfing, August is divided into four geographic areas. Click on any one of these four areas to go to that area’s list of Sunshine Guides.
