, like December
, is another hot summer month in Mangochi
, with average temperature ranging between min 21.6°C (70.9°F) and max 30.1°C (86.2°F).
In Mangochi, Malawi, the average high-temperature in January is relatively the same as in December - a still tropical 30.1°C (86.2°F). In January, the average low-temperature is 21.6°C (70.9°F).
The average heat index in January is computed to be a sweltering 37.4°C (99.3°F). Take special precautions - heat exhaustion and heat cramps are expected. Heatstroke may occur with lengthy activity.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. With 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 'real feel', 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', or 'felt air temperature', is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. Additional factors like activity, clothing, pregnancy, and wind 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. 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. A higher relative humidity affects normal body cooling by reducing the evaporation rate, subsequently lowering the rate at which the body cools and increasing the perception of heat. 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.
