August weather forecast and climate
Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

August, the last month of the summer, in Sharjah, is also a scorching month, with temperature in the range of an average low of 27.7°C (81.9°F) and an average high of 41.7°C (107.1°F).

Temperature

In August, the average high-temperature is almost the same as in July - an extremely hot 41.7°C (107.1°F). The average low-temperature, in August, is 27.7°C (81.9°F).

Heat index

In August, the average heat index is calculated to a burning hot 66.9°C (152.4°F). These weather conditions are considered as extremely dangerous, as heatstroke is imminent.
Take into consideration that the heat index values are calculated for shade and light wind conditions. Exposure to direct sunshine can increase heat index values by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', 'real feel', or 'felt air temperature', combines air temperature and relative humidity to represent a human perceived temperature equivalent. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (pregnancy, differences in body mass, height, and shape, clothing), and activity. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact, and may raise the heat index additionally, 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. A higher relative humidity affects normal body cooling by reducing the evaporation rate, subsequently lowering the rate at which the body cools and increasing the perception of heat. 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.

Humidity

In August, the average relative humidity is 57%.

Sunshine

The average sunshine in Sharjah is 10.5h.

UV index

Months with the highest UV index are April through August, with an average maximum UV index of 12. A UV Index reading of 11, and higher, represents an excessive health risk from the exposure to the Sun's UV rays for the ordinary person.
Note: The average daily UV index of 12 in August transform into the following instructions:
Practice all-important precautions. Light skin people may get burned in less than 5 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. Beware! The reflection of water and sand dramatically increases exposure to the UV rays.
