Weather in April

As April arrives, the city of Paramaribo becomes significantly wetter with a notable increase in precipitation. This increase in rainfall is almost 30mm (1.18") more than the previous month amounts. It is during this time that one can experience the true essence of a tropical monsoon climate, characterized by wet and dry seasons. The days become slightly longer and the humidity slightly higher compared to March. Despite the wet conditions, April's days still offer a decent amount of sunlight.

The unfolding of April shows an average high-temperature of a still warm 29°C (84.2°F), indicating a slight variance from March's 28.6°C (83.5°F). Paramaribo's nighttime temperatures in April see a subtle dip to an average of 24.5°C (76.1°F).

Heat index

Throughout April, the heat index is computed to be a fiery hot 35°C (95°F). Ensure additional precautions, heat exhaustion and heat cramps may be expected. Heatstroke could occur from sustained activity.
Realize that the values for the heat index are set for shaded places and light winds. With exposure to direct sunshine, the heat index could climb by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'apparent temperature', shows a temperature sensation when both heat and moisture conditions are combined. This effect is personal, shaped by the individual's physical activity and heat sensitivity, influenced by factors including wind, clothing, and metabolic variances. 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 remain especially vital for babies and toddlers. Juveniles are regularly less conscious of the need to recuperate and rehydrate. Thirst is a tardy symptom of dehydration - hydration, especially during lengthy physical activities, should be maintained.
Perspiration, followed by sweat evaporation, is the human body's chief method to maintain a balanced temperature. Increased relative humidity slows down evaporation, thereby decreasing the rate of heat removal from the body, culminating in a sensation of overheating. Overheating and potential dehydration arise when body heat gain eclipses its release capability.
