In Petua, the average high-temperature is essentially the same as in July - a still tropical 32.5°C (90.5°F). In Petua, in August, the average low-temperature is 27.1°C (80.8°F).

Heat index

The average heat index is estimated 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. 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', 'real feel', 'felt air temperature', or 'feels like', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. Additional factors like activity, differences in body mass, height, and shape, metabolic differences, and pregnancy 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.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. With a lot of moisture in the air, the evaporation process is not as effective, and the body does not cool down as efficiently, creating a perception of overheating. 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.
