, the last month of the spring in Santa Cruz de la Sierra
, is a tropical month, with an average temperature fluctuating between 30.7°C (87.3°F) and 20.3°C (68.5°F).
In November, the average high-temperature is practically the same as in October
- a tropical 30.7°C (87.3°F). In November, the average low-temperature is 20.3°C (68.5°F).
The average heat index in November is appraised at a torrid 37.4°C (99.3°F). Take extra precautions, as heat cramps and heat exhaustion are possible. Sustained activity may result in heatstroke.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. Exposure to direct sunshine can increase heat index values by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'real feel', 'felt air temperature', 'apparent temperature', or 'feels like', is a measure that combines air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (pregnancy, metabolic differences, wind), and activity. Bear in mind that direct sunshine exposure increases weather impact, and may raise heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly important for children. Young children are generally more endangered than adults, as they usually less sweat. And also, due to larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and higher heat production as a result of their activity.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 37.5°C (99.5°F) to 38.3°C (100.9°F), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.
In Santa Cruz de la Sierra, the average relative humidity in November is 72%.

The months with the highest UV index are January
, October through December
, with an average maximum UV index of 12. A UV Index estimate of 11, and higher, represents an extreme threat to health from unprotected exposure to Sun's UV rays for the ordinary person.Note
: In November, the average maximum UV index of 12 translate into the following recommendations:
Take all required precautions, as unprotected skin and eyes can burn in minutes. Seek shade and minimize exposure to direct Sun in a period between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV radiation is most intense; keep in mind that shade structures like parasols or canopies do not provide perfect sun protection. On bright days sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays should be worn. A hat with a wide brim is extremely helpful, as it can prevent roughly 50% of UV radiation from reaching the eyes. A broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30+ should be liberally applied and re-applied every two hours, and immediately after an outdoor workout or a swim.
