The last month of the summer, August
, is another torrid month in Aden
, with an average temperature fluctuating between 27.5°C (81.5°F) and 35.3°C (95.5°F).
The perfect water temperature of 28.8°C (83.8°F) with 3mm (0.12") of accumulated rainfall and only 2 rainfall days, makes August a great period for swimming and other water activities.
In August, the average high-temperature is practically the same as in July
- a still torrid 35.3°C (95.5°F). In August, the average low-temperature is 27.5°C (81.5°F).
In August, the average heat index is computed to be a life-threatening hot 49°C (120.2°F). Be wary
: Heat exhaustion and heat cramps are highly anticipated. With continued activity, heatstroke is very likely.
Take into consideration that the heat index values are calculated for shade and light wind conditions. With exposure to direct sunlight, the heat index may be increased by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'real feel', 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', or 'apparent temperature', is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. Additional factors like clothing, metabolic differences, pregnancy, and activity influence one's weather impression. 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. 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. 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.
The months with the lowest humidity are July and August, with an average relative humidity of 65%.
In August, the rain falls for 2 days. Throughout August, 3mm (0.12") of precipitation is accumulated. Throughout the year, in Aden, there are 21 rainfall days, and 37mm (1.46") of precipitation is accumulated.
In August, the average sea temperature in Aden is 28.8°C (83.8°F).Note
: Water temperature between 25°C (77°F) and 29°C (84.2°F) is regarded as very warm and enjoyable by all. With these temperatures, water activities are pleasurable, without feeling uncomfortable for prolonged periods.
In Aden, Yemen, the average length of the day in August is 12h and 32min.
On the first day of the month, sunrise is at 05:45 and sunset at 18:26. On the last day of August, sunrise is at 05:48 and sunset at 18:11 +03.
The average sunshine in August is 8.7h.
, with an average maximum UV index of 12, are months with the highest UV index. A UV Index estimate of 11, and higher, represents an extreme threat to health from exposure to the Sun's UV rays for average individuals.Note
: The daily maximum UV index of 12 in August interpret into the following advice:
Take all required precautions, as unprotected skin and eyes can burn in 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. 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 strength of the UV rays is significantly increased by the reflection of the water and sand.
