Heat index

The heat index for August is appraised at a blistering 107.6°F (42°C). Exercise heightened safety, heat cramps and heat exhaustion are probable. Persistent activity may provoke heatstroke.
Always consider that heat index estimations are for light winds and places in the shade. If exposed to direct sunlight, the heat index could climb by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'apparent temperature', represents the fusion of temperature and moisture in the air to suggest how warm it feels. Elements such as metabolic variations, pregnancy, and physical exertion can influence one's weather perception. Direct exposure to the sun's rays can enhance the felt temperature, increasing the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are highly critical for babies and toddlers. Children often lack awareness of the importance of taking breaks and rehydrating. The feeling of thirst is a late indication of dehydration, so maintaining hydration, especially during long periods of physical activity, is critical.
In the face of high temperatures, the human body's reflex is to perspire, leveraging sweat evaporation for cooling. When the air contains significant moisture, the efficiency of the evaporation process decreases, preventing the body from cooling down effectively and creating a feeling of overheating. Overheating and potential dehydration arise when body heat gain eclipses its release capability.
