October weather forecast and climate
Bhubaneswar, India

The first month of the post monsoon autumn, October, is still a tropical month in Bhubaneswar, India, with average temperature ranging between min 23°C (73.4°F) and max 32.2°C (90°F).

Temperature

In October, the average high-temperature is essentially the same as in September - a still tropical 32.2°C (90°F). In October, the average low-temperature is 23°C (73.4°F).

Heat index

The average heat index in October is estimated at an extremely hot 43.4°C (110.1°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. Exposure to direct sunshine can increase heat index values by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel', 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', or 'felt air temperature', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (pregnancy, clothing, wind). 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 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 cools itself through perspiration, as excessive warmth is removed from the body through sweat evaporation. With a lot of moisture in the air, the evaporation process is not as effective, and the body does not cool down as efficiently, creating a perception of overheating. 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.
