The last month of the spring, May
, is a torrid month in Bosaso
, with an average temperature varying between 37°C (98.6°F) and 26.1°C (79°F).
In Bosaso, the average high-temperature in May slightly increases from a hot 34°C (93.2°F) in April
to a very hot 37°C (98.6°F). The average low-temperature, in May, is 26.1°C (79°F).
In May, the average heat index is computed to be a life-threatening hot 53°C (127.4°F). Be wary
: Heat exhaustion and heat cramps are highly anticipated. With continued activity, heatstroke is very likely.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. With exposure to direct sunlight, the heat index may be increased by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'feels like', 'real feel', '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. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (differences in body mass, height, and shape, pregnancy, wind). 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 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. When heat gain surpasses the level the body can shed, body temperature begins to increase, and consequently, overheating and dehydration can occur, with varying severity.
The average relative humidity in May is 62%.
May is the last month it rains. During 2 rainfall days, Bosaso aggregates 3mm (0.12") of precipitation. Throughout the year, in Bosaso, there are 28 rainfall days, and 19mm (0.75") of precipitation is accumulated.

The months with the highest UV index in Bosaso are February
, with an average maximum UV index of 12. A UV Index value of 11, and more, symbolizes an extreme health hazard from exposure to the Sun's UV radiation for average individuals.Note
: The daily maximum UV index of 12 in May interpret into the following advice:
Take all required precautions, as unprotected skin and eyes can burn in minutes. The Sun's UV radiation is most powerful between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. To the extent possible, limit exposure to the direct sun during these hours. 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. 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 strength of the UV rays is significantly increased by the reflection of the water and sand.
