Heat index

The average heat index is calculated to a torrid 95°F (35°C). Take special precautions - heat exhaustion and heat cramps are expected. Heatstroke may occur with lengthy activity.
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', 'feels like', 'real feel', 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 subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (metabolic differences, wind, 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 particularly important for children. 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.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. 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 exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
