Wuhan Weather in August

Written by Kelly Pang Updated Jan. 17, 2021

Weather: It is in July and August that Wuhan often lives up to its name as one of the "Three Furnace Cities" in China. Especially in the broad inner city concrete and asphalt expanses, the city swelters in the heat and temperatures may rise above 40 °C (104 °C). It is much less rainy than earlier in the summer, and there is a lot of bright sunshine. However, it feels much cooler on the outskirts of the city and at East Lake Park.

The average nightly low temperature is 25 °C (77 °F), and the average daily high temperature is 33 °C (91 °F). The humidity at 79% makes it sweltering many days, and some days will likely seem the hottest of the year due to the bright sunshine. A third of the days are clear or mostly clear.

There are sometimes thunderstorms. The monthly precipitation totals 112 mm, and it rains in about 9 days of the month.

Pollution: The Air Quality Index is good at 71. Check Wuhan's currrent weather forecast>>

Clothing: It is often sunny, so cover up on sunny days with a sun hat, thin clothes, sun cream, etc. Take an umbrella if rain is forecast.

Things to Do in Wuhan in August

Enjoy the Shopping and Dining

Enjoy fine dining at the restaurants: When it is hot, you can step inside an air conditioned restaurant and enjoy the local food. Recommended restaurants are Old Hankou Restaurant and Taizi Restaurant. We recommend Wuhan Tiandi (武汉天地) for upscale shopping and dining in Hankou.

Visit East Lake Park for the Lotus Festival

East Lake Park: The Lotus Festival ends in mid August. The dreamy lotus blossoms emit a dreamy scent dozing in pads in red, white and blue shades. Escorting frogs provide a sonorous melancholy melody. On hot days, this huge parkland is a shady and cooler place to enjoy gardens and scenery.

Visit the Hubei Provincial Museum

Hubei Provincial Museum: If the weather is inclement, you can step into Hubei's main museum. The museum is right on the shore of East Lake in the park. Tourists appreciate the beauty, antiquity and value of the items: some are national treasures. It is Wuhan's favorite foreign tourist attraction.

Low Travel Season

Though a flood of students and university staff arrive in late August, it is low tourism season in Wuhan. Attractions are less crowded, except towards the end of August. Wuhan flights, train tickets and hotel rooms are easier to get and generally less expensive. We can arrange these.
