, the same as June
, in Mumbai
, is a hot rainy (monsoon) season month, with average temperature varying between 24.9°C (76.8°F) and 30°C (86°F).
In July, the average high-temperature is relatively the same as in June - a still hot 30°C (86°F). In Mumbai, India, in July, the average low-temperature is 24.9°C (76.8°F).
In July, the average heat index is calculated to be a very hot 39.4°C (102.9°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 'feels like', 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', or 'apparent temperature', is a measure that combines air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. Additional factors like activity, pregnancy, differences in body mass, height, and shape, and wind 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 especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Children are often less aware of the need to rest and re-hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - it is vital to remain hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.
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. When heat gain surpasses the level the body can shed, body temperature begins to increase, and consequently, overheating and dehydration can occur, with varying severity.
Months with the highest humidity in Mumbai are July and August
, with an average relative humidity of 86%.
July is the month with the most rainfall. Rain falls for 23.2 days and accumulates 799.7mm (31.48") of precipitation.
In July, the average sea temperature in Mumbai is 28.8°C (83.8°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.
The average length of the day is 13.1h.
July and August, with an average of 2.4h of sunshine, are months with the least sunshine in Mumbai.
, with an average maximum UV index of 12, are months with the highest UV index in Mumbai. A UV Index of 11, and more, symbolizes an extreme health hazard from the exposure to the Sun's UV radiation for average individuals.Note
: The daily maximum UV index of 12 interpret into the following advice:
Take all required precautions, as unprotected skin and eyes can burn in 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. Sun-protective clothing, a long-sleeved shirt and pants, a wide-brimmed hat, and UVA and UVB-blocking sunglasses are particularly helpful in blocking UV radiation's harmful effects. 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 strength of the UV rays is significantly increased by the reflection of the water and sand.
