Temperature

In May, the average high-temperature is essentially the same as in April - a still tropical 32.5°C (90.5°F). In Dibrugarh, the average low-temperature is 21.4°C (70.5°F).

Heat index

In May, the average heat index is appraised at a scorching 44°C (111.2°F). Beware - heat cramps and heat exhaustion are very likely. Heatstroke is imminent with prolonged activity.
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 a measure of how hot it feels when the actual air humidity is factored in. Additional factors like activity, clothing, differences in body mass, height, and shape, and pregnancy affect individual temperature impact. 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.
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.

Take precautions against overexposure. Fair-skinned people may get burned in less than 20 minutes. 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. A wide-brim hat offers excellent sun protection for 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.
