Temperature

Heat index

The average heat index in August is evaluated at an extremely hot 111.6°F (44.2°C). Beware: Heat cramps and heat exhaustion are very likely. Heatstroke is imminent with prolonged activity.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. Exposure to direct sunshine can increase heat index values by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like', 'real feel', 'felt air temperature', or 'apparent temperature', is a measure of how hot it feels when the actual air humidity is factored in. Additional factors like activity, differences in body mass, height, and shape, pregnancy, and metabolic differences affect individual temperature impact. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.

Note: In August, the average maximum UV index of 7 translate into the following recommendations:
Take precautions against overexposure. Protection against sun damage is needed. 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. A wide-brim hat offers excellent sun protection for the eyes, ears, face, and neck. Sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection significantly reduce eye damage from sun exposure. Tightly woven, loose-fitting clothes provide additional protection from the Sun. Beware! The strength of the UV rays is significantly increased by the reflection of the water and sand.
