In Massawa, the average high-temperature in June marginally rises from a very hot 36.8°C (98.2°F) in May
to an extremely hot 40.2°C (104.4°F). In Massawa, the average low-temperature is 25.7°C (78.3°F).
In June, the average heat index is evaluated at a life-threatening hot 58.3°C (136.9°F). Warning
: These weather conditions are considered as extremely dangerous, as heatstroke is imminent.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. With 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 'real feel', 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', or 'felt air temperature', is a measure of how hot it feels when the actual air humidity is factored in. Additional factors like activity, wind, clothing, and metabolic differences affect individual temperature impact. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the heat index 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.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration. Excessive warmth is eliminated from the body by evaporation of sweat. A higher relative humidity affects normal body cooling by reducing the evaporation rate, subsequently lowering the rate at which the body cools and increasing the perception of heat. 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.
In June, the average relative humidity in Massawa is 53.8%.
June is the month with the least rainfall in Massawa, Eritrea. Rain falls for 0.1 days and accumulates 0.4mm (0.02") of precipitation.
In Massawa, the average water temperature is 30.3°C (86.5°F).Note
: For swimming, other intense water activities, temperature above 30°C (86°F) is arguably unpleasant, as the water cooling effect is missing.
The month with the longest days is June, with an average of 13h and 2min of daylight.
On the first day of the month, sunrise is at 05:50 and sunset at 18:49. On the last day of June, in Massawa, Eritrea, sunrise is at 05:54 and sunset at 18:57 EAT.
The average sunshine in June in Massawa is 8h.
, with an average maximum UV index of 12, are months with the highest UV index. A UV Index reading of 11, and higher, represents an extreme health hazard from exposure to the Sun's UV rays for average individuals.Note
: The average daily UV index of 12 in June transform into the following instructions:
Take all required precautions, as unprotected skin and eyes 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. A wide-brim hat offers excellent sun protection for the 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. Caution! The reflection of sand and water significantly increases the intensity of the Sun's UV radiation.
