Moving into August
experiences a steady continuity in its typical climate conditions. An insignificant drop in sea temperatures does little to affect the pleasant swimming conditions typical of Singapore's tropical environment. Unlike the fluctuating climates in several parts of the world, Singapore in August retains the steady rhythm of rainfall, temperature, and humidity. The change from July
to August is inconspicuous, proving the consistency of Singapore's tropical weather patterns. These conditions further enhance the charm of this city-state for its inhabitants and visitors.
In August, a slight meteorological adjustment is experienced in Singapore, with average high-temperatures matching those of the previous month. Singapore's nights in August cool down to an average low-temperature of 24.5°C.
The average heat index in August is computed to be a blistering 42°C. Take special precautions - heat exhaustion and heat cramps are expected. Heatstroke may occur with lengthy activity.
Heat index specifics point out values are for conditions of shade and a slight breeze. The heat index may scale up by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees with direct sun exposure.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'feels like', is the outcome of merging air's temperature and its humidity metrics. A person's impression of weather can be shaped by several aspects, among them metabolic variations, pregnancy, and levels of physical activity. Realize that direct exposure to sunlight can augment the felt heat, leading to a potential increase in the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are largely significant for babies and toddlers. Children typically face more danger than adults as their sweat production is usually lower. Additionally, the bigger skin surface compared to their small size and the increased heat due to their activeness exacerbate the risk.
The primary way humans combat excessive warmth is by perspiring, letting sweat evaporate and cool the body. With an abundance of moisture present in the air, the process of evaporation becomes less effective, and the body fails to cool down as it should, leading to the sensation of overheating. Heat-related complications, like dehydration, can manifest if the body's heat gain exceeds its dissipation capacity.

, August through December
, with an average maximum UV index of 12, are months with the highest UV index. A UV Index estimate of 11, and higher, represents an excessive health risk from unsafe exposure to UV radiation for the ordinary person.Note
: The maximum daily UV index of 12 in August converts into the following recommendations:
Put into action all important safeguards, unprotected skin may burn swiftly. Avoid direct Sun exposure from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a period when UV radiation is most intense, and remember that not all shade structures provide full protection. Sunglasses that ward off UVA and UVB rays play a pivotal role in reducing solar eye damage. Even if it's cloudy, generously apply and frequently reapply a sunscreen with no less than a 30 sun protection factor after each swim or outdoor exercise. Take caution! The UV rays from the Sun gain strength from sand and water reflections.
