August, the last month of the summer, in Taipei, is another hot month, with average temperature varying between 26.1°C (79°F) and 33.8°C (92.8°F).

Temperature

In Taipei, the average high-temperature is almost the same as in July - a still hot 33.8°C (92.8°F). The average low-temperature, in August, is 26.1°C (79°F).

Heat index

In August, the average heat index is calculated to a burning hot 48.2°C (118.8°F). Beware - 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 the 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', 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', or 'apparent temperature', is a measure of how hot it feels when the actual air humidity is factored in. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (differences in body mass, height, and shape, metabolic differences, pregnancy). 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. 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 exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.

Note: In August, the average maximum UV index of 12 translate into the following recommendations:
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. Sun-protective clothing, a long-sleeved shirt and pants, a wide-brimmed hat, and UVA and UVB-blocking sunglasses are particularly helpful in blocking UV radiation's harmful effects. 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.
