Temperature

Salvador experiences its warmest period in February and March, averaging a high-temperature of 30°C (86°F).

Heat index

In February, the average heat index is calculated to be a very hot 37°C (98.6°F). Take greater precautions, heat exhaustion and heat cramps may be expected. Heatstroke could result from lengthy activity.
One should be cognizant that the heat index values are tailored for shaded spots and mild winds. The heat index has the possibility to be enhanced by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees when there is direct sun exposure.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'real feel', is a metric representing the sensation of warmth when air temperature and moisture come together. The impact of weather is personal, differing among a variety of people based on differences in body mass, height, and the level of physical exertion. When directly under the sun, the weather's impact can intensify, possibly boosting the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Typically, young kids are at a higher risk than adults since they sweat less. Also, the larger skin surface in proportion to their small bodies and the heightened heat production due to their active nature adds to their vulnerability.
Through perspiration, the body has a natural mechanism to eliminate excessive heat via sweat evaporation. Under conditions of high temperature and humidity (enhanced heat index), sweat production is compromised, exacerbating the sensation of warmth. Elevated heat gain compared to the body's release capability poses risks of dehydration and potential overheating.

Combat UV radiation's detrimental effects with sun-safe clothing and UV-blocking eyewear. Applying and reapplying liberally a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30+ every two hours, and straight after a swim or outdoor activity is recommended. Be alert! The reflection of water and sand augments UV radiation intensity.
