: Heat cramps and heat exhaustion are very likely. Heatstroke is imminent with prolonged activity.
Take into consideration that the heat index values are calculated for shade and light wind conditions. 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', 'apparent temperature', 'real feel', or 'felt air temperature', is a measure that combines air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. Additional factors like activity, metabolic differences, pregnancy, and clothing 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 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.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. When the relative humidity is high, the evaporation rate is reduced. The warmth is removed from the body at a lower rate, causing the body to retain more heat than it would in dry air. 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.
With an average relative humidity of 42%, February is the least humid month in Juba.

Practice all essential precautions. Protection against sun damage is crucial. 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 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. A broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30+ should be liberally applied and re-applied every two hours, and immediately after an outdoor workout or a swim.
