Making a transition into April
, an insignificant increase in rainfall to 20mm (0.79") is spread across 2.8 days. The daylight continues to stretch out, achieving up to 12.4 hours. Twinned with climbing temperatures, this creates standout weather for beach and water activities. Slightly elevated levels of relative humidity stand at 77.2%, still within the comfort zone. The sunshine hours undergo a mild decline yet remain adequately high, ensuring ample sunlight penetration.
The average high-temperature for April is a still tropical 31.1°C (88°F), closely aligning with the temperature of the preceding month. April sees the temperature falling to a mean low of 25.5°C (77.9°F).
April's heat index is evaluated at a blistering 40°C (104°F). Exercise more precautions, heat cramps and heat exhaustion are potential risks. Continuous activity could precipitate heatstroke.
Take into consideration that the heat index values are calculated for shade and light wind conditions. A rise of up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees in the heat index could result from direct sunlight.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'felt air temperature', is an indicator that blends the effects of temperature and humidity to depict perceived warmth. Depending on the activity and the individual's heat perception, which may vary due to factors including wind, clothing, and metabolic variations, this effect remains subjective. Keep in mind that direct sunshine exposure can amplify the weather's effects, possibly increasing the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are highly critical for babies and toddlers. Young individuals are generally in more danger than adults due to their lower capacity to sweat. Moreover, their large skin surface in relation to their small bodies and the increased heat generation from their activities makes them more vulnerable.
When temperatures rise, the human body turns to perspiration, using the cooling power of evaporating sweat. In the presence of high relative humidity, the evaporation rate diminishes, resulting in the body retaining more warmth compared to dry conditions. Temperature imbalances caused by excessive heat retention can trigger heat-related maladies.
, the average relative humidity in April is 77.2%.
