The first month of the summer, June
, is still a tropical month in Male
, with an average temperature varying between 30.5°C (86.9°F) and 25.8°C (78.4°F).
In Male, Maldives, the average high-temperature in June is practically the same as in May
- a still tropical 30.5°C (86.9°F). The average low-temperature, in June, is 25.8°C (78.4°F).
In June, the average heat index is evaluated at a very hot 39°C (102.2°F). Take extra precautions, as heat cramps and heat exhaustion are possible. Sustained activity may result in heatstroke.
Take into consideration that the heat index values are calculated for shade and light wind conditions. Exposure to direct sunshine can increase heat index values by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'real feel', 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', or 'apparent temperature', is what the temperature feels like to the human body when the air temperature is combined with the relative humidity. Additional factors like wind, metabolic differences, pregnancy, and activity influence one's weather impression. 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 particularly important for children. 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.
The human body cools itself through perspiration, as excessive warmth is removed from the body through sweat evaporation. 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.
The average relative humidity in June is 80.7%.
In Male, during 12.9 rainfall days, 172mm (6.77") of precipitation is typically accumulated. Throughout the year, in Male, there are 130.7 rainfall days, and 1949mm (76.73") of precipitation is accumulated.
In Male, the average water temperature is 29.2°C (84.6°F).Note
: For any water activity, surface water temperatures between 25°C (77°F) and 29°C (84.2°F) are considered as excellent and extremely pleasant for lengthened periods.
June has the longest days of the year, with an average of 12h and 22min of daylight.
On the first day of the month, sunrise is at 05:53 and sunset at 18:14. On the last day of June, in Male, Maldives, sunrise is at 05:58 and sunset at 18:20 +05.
June and September
, with an average of 6.7h of sunshine, are months with the least sunshine.
The months with the lowest UV index are June, July
, with an average maximum UV index of 11. A UV Index value of 11, and more, symbolizes an excessive health risk from exposure to the Sun's UV rays for ordinary individuals.Note
: In June, the average maximum UV index of 11 translate into the following recommendations:
Practice all-important precautions. Light skin people may get burned in less than 5 minutes. Seek shade and minimize exposure to direct Sun in a period between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV radiation is most intense; keep in mind that shade structures like parasols or canopies do not provide perfect sun protection. On bright days sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays should be worn. A hat with a wide brim is extremely helpful, as it can prevent roughly 50% of UV radiation from reaching the eyes. Even on cloudy days, a sunscreen with a minimum 30 sun protection factor should be generously applied and frequently re-applied, including after every swim or outdoor exercise. Beware! The reflection of water and sand dramatically increases exposure to the UV rays.
