Temperature

August is the warmest month, 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

The average heat index is estimated at a burning hot 114.6°F (45.9°C). Beware - heat cramps and heat exhaustion are very likely. Heatstroke is imminent with prolonged activity.
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', 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', or 'real feel', is a calculated temperature value of how hot it feels when the moisture in the air is factored in. 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 additionally, 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. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
