Clearwater Beach Weather & Events - August 2021

Clearwater Beach Weather – August 2021

The Clearwater Beach weather in August is very similar to July; warm with chances of popup storms. Please remember to take these storms seriously. These storms may not last that long, but they can bring a lot of dangerous lightning – when you see a storm coming, get off the beach and find a safe spot to wait the storm out before heading back out onto the beach.

The month of August in Clearwater Beach brings average temperatures of 87° highs and 80° lows, with ~14 days with rain. Most of these rainy days are quick popup storms, not all-day rains.

Clearwater Beach Weather & Events - July 2021

Clearwater Beach Weather – July 2021

It’s mid-summer and the middle of the Clearwater Beach Lightning Season. It’s hot and often humid. The air over land heats up faster than the air over the Gulf of Mexico. That creates a strong air temperature difference along the coasts and boom! You have a perfect place for pop-up thunderstorms to form.

In July, average temperates can range between the mid 90°s during the day and drop only into the mid 70°s at night. The thunderstorms I mentioned earlier are more frequent, usually just pop-up storms, but that makes the chances of rain higher in the month of July as well – with an average of 12-15 days with some rain showers.

Worth The Drive – Clearwater Beach to John’s Pass

,

Worth The Drive - John's Pass

Clearwater Beach is an amazing place for a family vacation. It’s known for sugar soft white sand beaches, beautiful sunsets, calm ocean water, delicious food, and more. But there’s more to the Tampa area than Clearwater Beach. Tampa Bay is filled with things to do that are fun for everyone! One of these great things to do is exploring all of the fun and beauty of John’s Pass.

Clearwater Beach to John’s Pass

John’s Pass is only 16 miles south of Surfside Condos and The Villas of Clearwater Beach, the premier beachfront Clearwater Beach Condos located on North Clearwater Beach. It’s not a far distance and it’s an easy drive (directions are available here). The drive offers some beautiful views as you cross over Clearwater Pass and head south toward Maderia Beach.

If you don’t have a car, don’t worry! You can still visit John’s Pass without having a car. You can now take the Jolley Trolley for a direct, non-stop route from Clearwater Beach to John’s Pass! No car, no problem!

What You’ll Find at John’s Pass

John’s Pass opened up in 1848. Yes, it literally opened up in 1848 as a result of a hurricane and began providing an access point from the Intracoastal Waterway to the Gulf of Mexico. Shortly after the hurricane, pirate John Levique sailed through the newly opened pass, and the name “John’s Pass” stuck. This spot became a fishing village and has grown to become a favorite tourist attraction in the Pinellas County area.

John’s Pass Village and Boardwalk is one of the best shopping areas in the Tampa Bay area. It’s a beautiful outdoor shopping area that offers many local shops, restaurants, and a full marina of cruises, fishing boats, rental boats, kayaks, paddleboards, jet skis, and more! You’ll even see a pirate ship docked at the marina and can take a Ferry to Egmont Key National Wildlife Refuge.

The Village and Boardwalk areas were also used as a filming location for Summer Rental (1985), featuring John Candy.
