May weather forecast and climate
Colva, India

May, the last month of the pre-monsoon summer, in Colva, is another tropical month, with average temperature fluctuating between 25.9°C (78.6°F) and 33.3°C (91.9°F).

Temperature

In Colva, the average high-temperature is essentially the same as in April - a still tropical 33.3°C (91.9°F). In May, in Colva, the average low-temperature is 25.9°C (78.6°F).

Heat index

In May, the average heat index is evaluated at a burning hot 45.8°C (114.4°F). Be wary - heat exhaustion and heat cramps are highly anticipated. With continued activity, heatstroke is very likely.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. 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', 'real feel', '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, metabolic differences, wind, and differences in body mass, height, and shape affect individual temperature impact. Bear in mind that direct sunshine exposure increases weather impact, and may raise 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. When the relative humidity is high, the evaporation rate is reduced. The warmth is removed from the body at a lower rate, causing the body to retain more heat than it would in dry air. 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

The average relative humidity in May is 73%.

Rainfall

In Colva, during May, the rain falls for 8.1 days and regularly aggregates up to 14mm (0.55") of precipitation. In Colva, India, during the entire year, the rain falls for 151.4 days and collects up to 1319mm (51.93") of precipitation.

Sea temperature

The month with the warmest seawater in Colva is May, with an average sea temperature of 30°C (86°F).
Note: For swimming, other intense water activities, temperature above 30°C (86°F) is arguably unpleasant, as the water cooling effect is missing.

Daylight

In Colva, the average length of the day is 12.8h.

Sunshine

In May, the average sunshine in Colva is 9.2h.

UV index

January through May, September through December, with an average maximum UV index of 7, are months with the highest UV index in Colva. A UV Index estimate of 6 to 7 represents a high health hazard from the exposure to the Sun's UV radiation for the average person.
Note: In May, the average maximum UV index of 7 translate into the following recommendations:
Take precautions against overexposure. Protection against sun damage is needed. Seek shade and minimize exposure to direct Sun in a period between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV radiation is most intense; keep in mind that shade structures like parasols or canopies do not provide perfect sun protection. 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. Beware! The reflection of water and sand dramatically increases exposure to the UV rays.
