Heat index

Bear in mind that the heat index values are determined for shaded areas and light breezes. The direct sunshine could escalate the heat index values by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'felt air temperature', melds the effects of warmth and moisture to generate a feeling of heat. Factors including metabolic differences, physical activity, and clothing are additional elements that influence the individual's temperature experience. Keep aware, the sun, when shining directly, can intensify the heat experience, pushing the heat index up by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are of high significance for children. Children often overlook the need for breaks and fluid intake. Thirst is a late-stage sign of dehydration - hence, it is necessary to stay hydrated, especially during extended periods of physical activities.
One way the human body deals with excessive warmth is by perspiring and allowing sweat to evaporate. In the presence of high relative humidity, the evaporation rate diminishes, resulting in the body retaining more warmth compared to dry conditions. Overheating and potential dehydration arise when body heat gain eclipses its release capability.
