August, one of the peak months in summer in the Estonian capital, is the second warmest month of the year, after July. You will be able to enjoy an afternoon temperature of around 22°C, while the nighttime temperature ranges about 12°C. 

The sea temperature is averaging 19°C, which is as warm as the Baltic Sea ever gets in this area. If you want to go and take a dip in the sea, August is one of the best times of year to do so.

August is without question one of the best months to visit Tallinn.

It is a good idea to check for accurate weather information.
