Adelaide has a Mediterranean climate with cool winters and warm summers. The city's typical summer temperature is around 84°F (29°C), though higher temperatures during heatwaves 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.

The wettest month in Adelaide is June, but rainfall is generally infrequent and sporadic – especially in summer – leading to droughts in the area. With rising temperatures over the past decade or so, bushfires and heatwaves have become more common than they once were.

In the case of extremely warm weather, expats should be sure to apply high-SPF sunscreen and stay hydrated.
