, Curaçao, greets May with an average high-temperature of a still tropical 31.6°C (88.9°F), marking a slight deviation from the preceding month. Nighttime temperatures hover around an average low of 26.3°C (79.3°F) in May.
In May, the average heat index is evaluated at a scorching 42°C (107.6°F). Take special precautions - heat exhaustion and heat cramps are expected. Heatstroke may occur with lengthy activity.
Take note of the fact that heat index values are based on shaded circumstances with light airflows. The heat index might be elevated by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees due to direct sun exposure.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'feels like', comes about by integrating the temperature readings with the humidity levels. The impact of weather on an individual can be subjective, affected by the person's activity and heat perception, which can vary due to elements including wind, clothing, and metabolic differences. Given direct exposure to sunlight, one might experience a rise in the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are highly critical to babies and toddlers. Youngsters are usually more at risk than adults, considering they sweat less. Additionally, their high skin surface area compared to their little bodies and their high heat production due to activity increases their risk.
Evaporating sweat, an outcome of perspiration, is key in assisting the human body to moderate its temperature. When relative humidity is heightened, it slows the rate of evaporation, thereby decreasing the body's ability to shed heat and creating a sensation of overheating. Excessive heat gain, when not shed effectively by the body, can result in increasing body temperatures and related hazards.
