Weather in August in the mountains

The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
I walked it in late June this year, so not August but still summer. The first day was very hot and that stage is an often shadeless walk with not much water available. It was quite hazy in the first few days and every afternoon/evening storms were forecast, but each of the first three days the rain didn’t come (although it got slightly cooler as the altitude increased). Finally the rain came on the afternoon of day 4 and it was much cooler after that.
I started on the Salvador on the first day of June 2019. I had been on the Francés up to León, and a heat wave was just starting. Going up into the mountains on the Salvador saved me from the worst of the heat.
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
