As Sorong heads into August, the weather morphs moderately with a slight decline in temperature to 28.8°C (83.8°F). Noteworthy is the preservation of typical weather conditions with high humidity and prevalent rainfall, reemphasizing the city's tropical status. Intermittent bouts of rain accompanied by warm temperatures continue to frame the August weather in Sorong. Despite these small shifts, August's weather remains reminiscent of the preceding months.

Temperature

August, noted for its average high-temperature of 28.8°C (83.8°F) and an average low-temperature of 24.2°C (75.6°F), is considered the coldest month.

Heat index

August's heat index is calculated to be a fiery hot 35°C (95°F). Incorporate extra safety measures to avoid heat exhaustion and heat cramps. Continuous activity could provoke heatstroke.
It is noted that heat index values are ascertained for locations in the shade and with gentle breezes. Exposure to direct sunlight may make the heat index values climb by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'apparent temperature', shows a temperature sensation when both heat and moisture conditions are combined. The impact of weather on an individual can be subjective, affected by the person's activity and heat perception, which can vary due to elements including wind, clothing, and metabolic differences. It is noteworthy to mention that direct sunlight exposure can augment the felt temperature, leading to an increase in the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are extremely vital to babies and toddlers. Young individuals usually face greater risks than adults as their sweat production is less. Also, their larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and the high heat generation due to their activity contributes to their vulnerability.
Humans rely on perspiration as a cooling mechanism, wherein the evaporating sweat counteracts excessive warmth. An elevated level of relative humidity hinders evaporation, leading to decreased heat elimination from the body, inducing a sensation of excess heat. When heat uptake goes beyond the body's cooling mechanisms, there's a surge in body temperature, posing health risks.
