Weather in Paris mid August?

Could someone tell me what kind of weather to expect in Paris mid-August. Is it usually hot or because summer is coming to an end is it cooling down?

Thank you.

There are any number of websites for determining "average" temps for your dates.

Regardless, there could be a spell of very hot weather during your stay, a spell of very cool weather, or either followed by the other, or it could just be mild your entire stay. There could be a little rain, a lot, or none.

The weather varies from one year to the next, so the weather for a particular week one year may be completely different that same week the next year.

There is just no forecasting the weather this far ahead. Even forecasts just ahead of leaving may or may not turn out to be all that accurate.

There's apparently no "normal" weather anywhere, anymore...

The best thing would be to check the local weather a couple of days before you arrive - and take it with a grain of salt. www.meteofrance.com

Generally speaking, mid-August is quite warm and usually sunny. This is the worst month for "la canicule" - a sudden, intense heat wave that can last a week or more. If you are used to air-conditioning, you should be sure that your lodging provides it. You will probably be eating your weight in ice cream, like everyone else does.

A sudden cool front with rain can occur at any time, so a lightweight rain jacket would come in handy - umbrellas are useless, if it's windy.
