Weather in Adelaide

Adelaide has a Mediterranean climate with cool winters and warm summers. The city's typical temperature in summer is around 84°F (29°C), though higher temperatures have become common in recent years. Due to its coastal location, the city enjoys a series of alternating land and sea breezes that greatly influence average seasonal temperatures and can offer some relief from scorching summer days.

Although Adelaide once had a reputation for consistent rainfall, in the past decade or two the city has seen a spike in average temperatures and a drop in regular rainfall over spring, leading to droughts in the area. Bushfires and heatwaves have become more common than they once were.

In the case of very warm weather, expats should be sure to look after themselves by applying high-SPF sunscreen and staying hydrated.
