August, the last month of the summer, in Acapulco, is another tropical month, with average temperature varying between 25.1°C (77.2°F) and 32.2°C (90°F).

Temperature

In August, the average high-temperature is almost the same as in July - a still hot 32.2°C (90°F). In Acapulco, Mexico, the average low-temperature is 25.1°C (77.2°F).

Heat index

In August, the average heat index is evaluated at a scorching 43.4°C (110.1°F). Beware - heat cramps and heat exhaustion are very likely. Heatstroke is imminent with prolonged activity.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. 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 an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (differences in body mass, height, and shape, pregnancy, wind), and activity. 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.
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. When heat gain surpasses the level the body can shed, body temperature begins to increase, and consequently, overheating and dehydration can occur, with varying severity.

Humidity

The average relative humidity in Acapulco is 76%.

In Acapulco, in August, during 13.6 rainfall days, 295.2mm (11.6") of precipitation is typically accumulated. Throughout the year, in Acapulco, there are 67.6 rainfall days, and 1336.8mm (52.6") of precipitation is accumulated.

Sea temperature

Sunshine

In August, the average sunshine is 7.4h.

UV index

Months with the highest UV index in Acapulco, Mexico, are March through September, with an average maximum UV index of 12. A UV Index reading of 11, and higher, represents an ultimate health vulnerability from unprotected exposure to the Sun's UV rays for ordinary individuals.
Note: In August, the average maximum UV index of 12 translate into the following recommendations:
Practice all essential precautions. Protection against sun damage is crucial. 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. Even on cloudy days, a sunscreen with a minimum 30 sun protection factor should be generously applied and frequently re-applied, including after every swim or outdoor exercise. Caution! The reflection of sand and water significantly increases the intensity of the Sun's UV radiation.
