Scandinavia's climate is quite complex, but let's start with the basic plus: You probably won't swelter in August in Scandinavia. Summers are usually quite pleasant. Expect some rain.
Here are some generalities. The weather in Denmark and southern Sweden is much like the north of Germany, a marine west coast climate. The center of Sweden is a humid continental climate becoming subarctic as you go north. The south of Sweden and the west coast of Norway offer a mild costal climate with lots of precipitation, especially in the winter.
