St Augustine Summer Weather

Summer in St. Augustine Florida is hot and humid. Between June and August temperatures reach the 90s during the day and cool off to the mid-70s at night. While you may want to bring some lighter layers for the evening, you'll be able to get by just fine with short sleeves, shorts, and flip flops for the majority of the time you're here. Keep in mind that rain is possible in the summer, but we typically just experience mid-day rain showers that clear up quickly.

The 4th of July in St. Augustine is typically a celebration of fireworks and festive activities.
