, the same as June
, in Taipei
, is another tropical summer month, with an average temperature varying between 26.3°C (79.3°F) and 34.3°C (93.7°F).
The warmest month is July, with an average high-temperature of 34.3°C (93.7°F) and an average low-temperature of 26.3°C (79.3°F).
The average heat index in July is calculated to be a burning hot 49°C (120.2°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. 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 'felt air temperature', 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', or 'real feel', is a measure that combines air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (wind, metabolic differences, differences in body mass, height, and shape). 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 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. 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. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 37.5°C (99.5°F) to 38.3°C (100.9°F), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.
The least humid month is July, with an average relative humidity of 73%.
In Taipei, during 12.3 rainfall days, 245mm (9.65") of precipitation is typically accumulated. In Taipei, Taiwan, during the entire year, the rain falls for 165.5 days and collects up to 2405mm (94.69") of precipitation.
In Taipei, the average length of the day in July is 13h and 31min.
On the first day of July in Taipei, sunrise is at 05:07 and sunset at 18:47. On the last day of the month, sunrise is at 05:20 and sunset at 18:39 CST.
The average sunshine in July is 5.8h.
The months with the highest UV index are May
, with an average maximum UV index of 12. A UV Index reading of 11, and higher, represents an ultimate health vulnerability from unsafe exposure to UV radiation for average individuals.Note
: The daily maximum UV index of 12 in July interpret into the following advice:
Take all necessary precautions, as unprotected skin can burn in minutes. Seek shade and minimize exposure to direct Sun in a period between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV radiation is most intense; keep in mind that shade structures like parasols or canopies do not provide perfect sun protection. 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. 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.
