October weather forecast and climate
Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

October, like September, in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, is another torrid autumn month, with average temperature fluctuating between 36°C (96.8°F) and 20.6°C (69.1°F).

Temperature

In Sharjah, the average high-temperature slightly decreases, from 39.8°C (103.6°F) in September, to a still sweltering 36°C (96.8°F). In Sharjah, in October, the average low-temperature is 20.6°C (69.1°F).

Heat index

The average heat index in October is estimated at a burning hot 50.4°C (122.7°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. 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', is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (clothing, pregnancy, metabolic differences), and activity. 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 particularly important for children. 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, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. 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.

Note: In October, the average maximum UV index of 8 translate into the following recommendations:
Take extra precautions. Fair-skinned individuals may get burned in less than 10 minutes. The Sun's UV radiation is most powerful between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. To the extent possible, limit exposure to the direct sun during these hours. 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. Beware! The reflection of water and sand dramatically increases exposure to the UV rays.
