Weather in May

As we approach May, the transition to a drier climate becomes more apparent. With recorded rainfall of just 72mm (2.83") over 20.5 days, it's a welcome respite from the persistent rainy days of the previous months. More sun and less cloud cover contribute to longer daylight hours, encouraging more outdoor activities. The gentle winds that blow over Depok further maintain the pleasant weather condition. Consequently, May serves as the commencement of the dry season in the city.

Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'feels like', gives an indication of how one might feel in terms of heat after considering humidity. Metabolic differences, pregnancy status, and the level of physical activity are additional factors influencing an individual's weather perception. Taking into account that direct sunlight can boost the heat effect, the heat index may rise by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values hold great significance to children. Children often fail to recognize the requirement to rest and rehydrate. Thirst, being a late symptom of dehydration, underlines the importance of maintaining hydration, especially during ongoing physical activities.
The human body cools itself through perspiration, as excessive warmth is removed from the body through sweat evaporation. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. Overheating can ensue when the body accumulates more heat than it can release, and dehydration severity may vary.
