Weather in July

July brings in the pinnacle of summer with temperatures rising noticeably in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Although July sees a slight increase in clouds, they do little to alleviate the heat. The city records the highest temperature of the year at 91°F (32.8°C) in July, marking the peak of summer. The increased humidity coupled with the heat makes for a sultry climate. However, with August on the horizon, residents can look forward to a marginal decline in temperatures.

Temperature

The onset of July in Lake Charles marks an average high-temperature of a still tropical 91°F (32.8°C), hardly differing from June's 89.4°F (31.9°C). Lake Charles experiences a mean temperature of 75.7°F (24.3°C) during July nights.

Heat index

The average heat index in July is estimated at a blazing hot 114.8°F (46°C). Stay vigilant: Heat cramps along with heat exhaustion are expected. Heatstroke may follow prolonged exertion.
In reference to the heat index, it's for places in shade and with a slight wind. Being under direct sunlight might amplify the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'real feel', stands as a testimony to how temperature and humidity combine to impact our sense of warmth. An individual's perception of weather can be influenced by a variety of factors including metabolic differences, being pregnant, and their degree of physical exertion. 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 hold particular significance for children. Children usually face more risks than adults as their ability to sweat is less. Additionally, their larger skin surface in relation to their petite bodies and higher heat output due to their activities increases their vulnerability.
The physiological response of the human body to excess warmth is to perspire, thereby cooling itself through sweat evaporation. When air moisture content is high, the cooling process through evaporation is not as efficient, leading to an ineffective body cooling process and a feeling of overheating. Heat absorption that surpasses the body's shedding capability can lead to overheating and varying levels of dehydration.
