August weather forecast and climate
Guwahati, India

August, the same as July, in Guwahati, India, is another hot rainy (monsoon) season month, with average temperature ranging between min 25.4°C (77.7°F) and max 32.1°C (89.8°F).

Temperature

With an average high-temperature of 32.1°C (89.8°F) and an average low-temperature of 25.4°C (77.7°F), August is the warmest month.

Heat index

In August, the average heat index is estimated at a life-threatening hot 45.6°C (114.1°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. 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', 'apparent temperature', 'real feel', or 'feels like', is a measure of how hot it feels when the actual air humidity is factored in. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (differences in body mass, height, and shape, pregnancy, clothing). 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.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. 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 37.5°C (99.5°F) to 38.3°C (100.9°F), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.
