. Rainfall remains non-existent, sharing its trait with the prior summer months. The humid conditions, amplified by the lack of moisture from rainfall, makes the heat more severe. With the prolonged daylight hours and high temperatures lingering, the arid conditions continue to dominate the cityscape.
August, characterized by an average high temperature of 32°C and a low temperature of 22°C, is generally the warmest month in Morphou.
August's heat index is calculated to be a scorching 40°C. Ensure extra safety measures, heat exhaustion and heat cramps are likely. Continuous activity might result in heatstroke.
Understanding the heat index involves considering values for shaded locales with light wind. Direct exposure to sunlight could raise the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'apparent temperature', ties air temperature with relative humidity to produce the perceived temperature sensation. Additional elements encompassing metabolic differences, the degree of physical activity, and attire can impact the individual's perception of temperature. Understand that direct sun rays can influence the weather's impact, leading to an increase in the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially vital to children. Children are often less aware of the need to rest and re-hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - it's vital to remain hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.
The human body cools itself through perspiration, as excessive warmth is removed from the body through sweat evaporation. 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. Overheating can ensue when the body accumulates more heat than it can release, and dehydration severity may vary.
