marks a continuous stretch of bustling rain clouds, manifesting as the second wettest month in Male
. The deluge does little to mitigate the warm sea and air temperatures, retaining the tropical allure of this island city. Characterized by comfortable evenings and simmering afternoons, the weather remains amenable for recreational indoor pursuits as well as selected outdoor adventures. June carries forward the trend of a high rainfall volume, amassing 172mm (6.77") of precipitation across nearly half the month. As the rainfall begins to abate towards the end, it sets the stage for the imminent transition into drier months.
In June, Male experiences a barely noticeable shift in meteorological conditions, with average high-temperatures moving from 31°C (87.8°F) in May
to a still hot 30.5°C (86.9°F). Nights in June exhibit a minor reduction to an average low temperature of 25.8°C (78.4°F).
The average heat index in June is evaluated at a fiery hot 39°C (102.2°F). Preventive measures are required to mitigate the risk of heat cramps and heat exhaustion. Continuous activity may precipitate heatstroke.
The standards for the heat index are set for locations in shade and under light breezes. Being exposed to direct sunshine might trigger a heat index increase by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'apparent temperature', combines air temperature and relative humidity to represent a human perceived temperature equivalent. The effect of weather is individual, with a variety of people experiencing it differently due to distinctions in body mass, height, and level of activity. One's exposure to direct sunlight has the potential to intensify the heat sensation, increasing the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly relevant to children. Typically, children face more danger than adults as they usually perspire less. Their larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and increased heat output from their activities enhance their risk.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. When relative humidity increases, the body's capacity to evaporate heat decreases, leading to a heightened sense of warmth. If the body retains more heat than it can expel, the increasing temperature can lead to heat-related conditions.
In June, the average relative humidity is 80.7%.
In June, the rain falls for 12.9 days. Throughout June, 172mm (6.77") of precipitation is accumulated. In Male, Maldives

, with an average maximum UV index of 11, are months with the lowest UV index in Male. A UV Index value of 11, and more, symbolizes an extreme threat to health from exposure to the Sun's UV radiation for average individuals.Note
: In June, the UV index of 11 transforms into the following advice:
Execute every important safeguard, as unprotected skin and eyes could burn within moments. Stay in the shade and limit direct sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV radiation is at its strongest. Remember, however, that not all shade structures provide full sun protection. It's wise to wear UVA and UVB-blocking sunglasses when the sun shines brightly. Frequent reapplication of a broad-spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen is vital every two hours or directly after a swim or an outdoor workout. Attention! The reflection of both water and sand can increase the intensity of UV rays.
