is characterized by radiant sunlight, accompanied by a rise in warmth, rendering this period increasingly appealing for sun-worshippers. Februray spectate a dramatic escalation in UV index to 12, the highest annual value, indicating strong sunlight intensity. The city, however, brims with life as the duration of daylight extends to 11.7 hours, allowing for longer exploratory pursuits. Although still being part of the dry season, the month experiences light precipitation, preparing for the impending monsoon season. With falling relative humidity and sea temperatures on a slow incline, the city transitions gradually into the warmer March
The average high-temperature in Bangkok during February registers at a still hot 33.3°C, maintaining a close resemblance to the previous month. Bangkok's average low-temperature in February is measured at a warm 24.4°C.
The heat index value for February is computed to be a blazing hot 45°C. Stay on guard
: Heat exhaustion and heat cramps are predicted. Ongoing effort can cause heatstroke.
It is important to note that the heat index values are for shaded areas and light wind scenarios. Being under direct sunlight might amplify the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'feels like', comes about by integrating the temperature readings with the humidity levels. The individual's experience of temperature can be shaped by numerous aspects such as metabolic variations, physical exertion, and attire. With the sun shining directly, it's crucial to understand that it can increase the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially vital to children. Children frequently underestimate the necessity to rest and hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - thus, it is vital to stay hydrated, particularly during lengthy physical exercises.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. An increase in relative humidity disrupts body cooling by slowing the evaporation rate, thereby reducing the rate at which the body cools and amplifying the sense of heat. When body temperature rises due to an imbalance in heat gain, there's a potential for dehydration and overheating.
In February, the average relative humidity in Bangkok is 72%.

February through September
, with an average maximum UV index of 12, are months with the highest UV index in Bangkok. A UV Index estimate of 11, and higher, represents an extreme threat to health from exposure to the Sun's UV rays for the average person.Note
: In February, an average UV index of 12 transforms into the following instructions:
Adopt every precaution of necessity, unprotected skin and eyes may suffer burns instantly. Stay in the shade and limit direct Sun exposure from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a time when UV radiation is particularly strong. Remember, however, that shade structures may not provide complete protection. It's wise to wear UVA and UVB-blocking sunglasses when the sun shines brightly. Sunscreen of at least SPF 30 should be applied generously and reapplied often on overcast days, especially post swim or outdoor exercise. Attention! UV radiation is markedly stronger with water and sand reflections.
