The last month of the summer, August, is also a scorching month in Djibouti, Djibouti, with average temperature varying between 41.2°C (106.2°F) and 30.6°C (87.1°F).
The ideal sea water temperature of 29.7°C (85.5°F) and only 1 rainfall days, with 5.6mm (0.2") of accumulated rainfall, make August the best time for swimming and other water activities.

Temperature

In Djibouti, the average high-temperature is practically the same as in July - a still scorching 41.2°C (106.2°F). In August, in Djibouti, the average low-temperature is 30.6°C (87.1°F).

Heat index

In August, the average heat index is estimated at a blazing hot 57.8°C (136°F). These weather conditions are regarded as very dangerous, as heatstroke is imminent.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. 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 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', 'felt air temperature', or 'real feel', is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (pregnancy, metabolic differences, wind), and activity. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact, and may raise the heat index additionally, by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly important for children. Young children are generally more endangered than adults, as they usually less sweat. And also, due to larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and higher heat production as a result of their activity.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. 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.

Humidity

In August, the average relative humidity is 48.7%.

Rainfall

In Djibouti, during 1 rainfall days, 5.6mm (0.2") of precipitation is typically accumulated. In Djibouti, during the entire year, the rain falls for 17 days and collects up to 163.5mm (6.4") of precipitation.

Sea temperature

In Djibouti, Djibouti, the average seawater temperature is 29.7°C (85.5°F).
Note: For any water activity, surface water temperatures between 25°C (77°F) and 29°C (84.2°F) are considered as excellent and extremely pleasant for lengthened periods.

Daylight

The average length of the day in Djibouti is 12.5h.

Sunshine

In Djibouti, Djibouti, the average sunshine in August is 8.9h.

UV index

February through September, with an average maximum UV index of 12, are months with the highest UV index. A UV Index estimate of 11, and higher, represents an extreme threat to health from the exposure to the Sun's UV radiation for the ordinary person.
Note: In August, the average maximum UV index of 12 translate into the following recommendations:
Take all necessary precautions, as unprotected skin can burn in minutes. The Sun's UV radiation is most powerful between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. To the extent possible, limit exposure to the direct sun during these hours. On bright days sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays should be worn. A hat with a wide brim is extremely helpful, as it can prevent roughly 50% of UV radiation from reaching the eyes. Even on cloudy days, a sunscreen with a minimum 30 sun protection factor should be generously applied and frequently re-applied, including after every swim or outdoor exercise. Beware! The reflection of water and sand dramatically increases exposure to the UV rays.
