The dawn of April in Buea sees an average high-temperature of a still hot 31.4°C (88.5°F), subtly contrasting with March's 32.1°C (89.8°F). Buea records an average low-temperature of 25°C (77°F) throughout the month of April.

Heat index

April's heat index is estimated at a scorching 40°C (104°F). Ensure extra safety measures, heat exhaustion and heat cramps are likely. Continuous activity might result in heatstroke.
Bear in mind that the heat index values are determined for shaded areas and light breezes. Heat index values may surge by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees in the presence of direct sunlight.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'feels like', melds the effects of warmth and moisture to generate a feeling of heat. Physical activity, clothing, and metabolic variations are additional factors that impact an individual's perception of temperature. Realize that direct exposure to sunlight can augment the felt heat, leading to a potential increase in the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are essentially critical for children. Children typically face more danger than adults as their sweat production is usually lower. Additionally, the bigger skin surface compared to their small size and the increased heat due to their activeness exacerbate the risk.
To offset high temperatures, the human body releases sweat which, upon evaporation, cools it down. Heightened relative humidity interferes with the body's usual cooling mechanism by reducing evaporation, subsequently decreasing the body's cooling rate and increasing the sensation of heat. Overheating and dehydration threats arise when heat gain goes beyond what the body can comfortably shed.
