, the same as September
, in Ko Lanta
, is another hot autumn month, with an average temperature fluctuating between 24.4°C (75.9°F) and 30.9°C (87.6°F).
In October, the average high-temperature is relatively the same as in September - a still hot 30.9°C (87.6°F). In October, the average low-temperature is 24.4°C (75.9°F).
In October, the average heat index is computed to be a blistering 42°C (107.6°F). Take extra precautions, as heat cramps and heat exhaustion are possible. Sustained activity may result in heatstroke.
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', 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', or 'apparent temperature', is a calculated temperature value of how hot it feels when the moisture in the air 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, pregnancy, wind). 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.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. 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.
