April, like March, is another hot spring month in Bangui, Central African Republic, with temperature in the range of an average high of 32.7°C (90.9°F) and an average low of 21.3°C (70.3°F).

Temperature

In Bangui, the average high-temperature in April is practically the same as in March - a still hot 32.7°C (90.9°F). The average low-temperature, in Bangui, is 21.3°C (70.3°F).

Heat index

The average heat index is estimated at an extremely hot 44.9°C (112.8°F). Be wary - heat exhaustion and heat cramps are highly anticipated. With continued activity, heatstroke is very likely.
Take into consideration that the heat index values are calculated for shade and light wind conditions. With the exposure to direct sunlight, the heat index may be increased by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', 'apparent temperature', or 'real feel', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. Additional factors like pregnancy, differences in body mass, height, and shape, clothing, and activity influence one's weather impression. 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. Children are often less aware of the need to rest and re-hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - it is vital to remain hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. 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.

Take all necessary precautions, as unprotected skin 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. A wide-brim hat offers excellent sun protection for eyes, ears, face, and neck. Sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection significantly reduce eye damage from sun exposure. Tightly woven, loose-fitting clothes provide additional protection from the Sun. 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.
