July, the same as June, in Richmond, Virginia, is another tropical summer month, with temperature in the range of an average high of 89.8°F (32.1°C) and an average low of 68.9°F (20.5°C).

Temperature

July is the warmest month, with an average high-temperature of 89.8°F (32.1°C) and an average low-temperature of 68.9°F (20.5°C).

Heat index

The average heat index is calculated to a blistering 108.7°F (42.6°C). Be wary - heat exhaustion and heat cramps are highly anticipated. With continued activity, heatstroke is very likely.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. With the 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 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', 'feels like', or 'apparent temperature', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (pregnancy, clothing, wind), and activity. 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 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. 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 99.5°F (37.5°C) to 100.9°F (38.3°C), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.

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. 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.
