is characterized by a marked increase in rainfall, signifying Victoria
's transition towards the wetter months of the year. Despite the augmenting showers, the city continues to enjoy good sunshine hours and pleasant temperatures. An increase in rainfall to 121mm (4.76") in September denotes the end of the drier part of the year. Sightseeing and exploration are still enjoyable activities during this time, with the city's natural beauty appearing more radiant and refreshing.

September's average high-temperature stands at a still warm 29.1°C (84.4°F), showing little deviation from August
's 28.4°C (83.1°F). Victoria indicates a consistently low-temperature of 24.2°C (75.6°F) during the nights of September.
For most parts of September, the heat index is estimated at a very hot 35°C (95°F). Greater preventive actions are needed, heat exhaustion and heat cramps are likely. Persistent activity could provoke heatstroke.
Heat index data is primarily for areas with shade and subjected to light winds. Being under direct sunlight might amplify the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'felt air temperature', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. Factors including metabolic differences, physical activity, and clothing are additional elements that influence the individual's temperature experience. It is essential to realize that direct sunlight can escalate the perceived temperature, increasing the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are highly critical to babies and toddlers. Younglings frequently fail to recognize the requirement to rest and rehydrate. Thirst emerges late in dehydration - it is imperative to keep hydration levels high, particularly during extended physical exertions.
In high temperatures, perspiration kicks in, allowing the human body to cool down through the evaporation of sweat. Under conditions of high temperature and humidity (enhanced heat index), sweat production is compromised, exacerbating the sensation of warmth. Heat absorption that surpasses the body's shedding capability can lead to overheating and varying levels of dehydration.
