, is a scorching month, with average temperature varying between 40.8°C (105.4°F) and 24.6°C (76.3°F).
In June, the average high-temperature is almost the same as in May
- a blistering 40.8°C (105.4°F). The average low-temperature, in June, is 24.6°C (76.3°F).
In June, the average heat index is computed to be a burning hot 62.4°C (144.3°F). Warning
: These weather conditions are considered as extremely dangerous, as heatstroke is imminent.
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 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', or 'feels like', 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 (metabolic differences, differences in body mass, height, and shape, 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. Children are often less aware of the need to rest and re-hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - it is vital to remain hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration. Excessive warmth is eliminated from the body by evaporation of sweat. 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 surpasses the level the body can shed, body temperature begins to increase, and consequently, overheating and dehydration can occur, with varying severity.
The average relative humidity in Sharjah is 56%.
are months without rainfall.
In June, the average sea temperature is 31.6°C (88.9°F).Note
: For swimming, other intense water activities, temperature above 30°C (86°F) is arguably unpleasant, as the water cooling effect is missing.
June has the longest days of the year, with an average of 13.7h of daylight.
The month with the most sunshine in Sharjah is June, with an average of 11.6h of sunshine.
Months with the highest UV index are April
through August, with an average maximum UV index of 12. A UV Index of 11, and more, symbolizes an extreme threat to health from the exposure to the Sun's UV rays for the ordinary person.Note
: The daily maximum UV index of 12 interpret into the following advice:
Take all required precautions, as unprotected skin and eyes 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. On bright days sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays should be worn. A hat with a wide brim is extremely helpful, as it can prevent roughly 50% of UV radiation from reaching the eyes. 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. Beware! The strength of the UV rays is significantly increased by the reflection of the water and sand.
