Temperature

The warmest month is October, with an average high-temperature of 31.9°C (89.4°F) and an average low-temperature of 24.8°C (76.6°F).

Heat index

The average heat index in October is appraised at a scorching 42.8°C (109°F). Beware - heat cramps and heat exhaustion are very likely. Heatstroke is imminent with prolonged activity.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. Exposure to direct sunshine can increase heat index values 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 a measure of how hot it feels when the actual air humidity is factored in. Additional factors like metabolic differences, wind, pregnancy, and activity influence one's weather impression. Bear in mind that direct sunshine exposure increases weather impact, and may raise heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. 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.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
