- a still moderately hot 29.9°C (85.8°F). In May, the average low-temperature is 20.6°C (69.1°F).
In May, the average heat index is estimated at a very hot 38°C (100.4°F). Take special precautions - heat exhaustion and heat cramps are expected. Heatstroke may occur with lengthy activity.
Take into consideration that the heat index values are calculated for shade and light wind conditions. Exposure to direct sunshine can increase heat index values by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', 'real feel', or 'felt air temperature', is what the temperature feels like to the human body when the air temperature is combined with the relative humidity. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (metabolic differences, clothing, pregnancy). 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 especially crucial for babies and toddlers. 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, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
