Weather in August

The last month of the summer, August, is another tropical month in Orlando, Florida, with an average temperature varying between 91°F (32.8°C) and 76.8°F (24.9°C).

Temperature

The warmest month is August, with an average high-temperature of 91°F (32.8°C) and an average low-temperature of 76.8°F (24.9°C).

Heat index

In August, the average heat index is computed to be a life-threatening hot 114.6°F (45.9°C). 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. 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', 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', or 'real feel', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. Additional factors like clothing, pregnancy, differences in body mass, height, and shape, and activity influence one's weather impression. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the 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.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 99.5°F (37.5°C) to 100.9°F (38.3°C), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.

Note: In August, the average maximum UV index of 7 translate into the following recommendations:
Take precautions against overexposure. Fair-skinned people may get burned in less than 20 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.
