Heat index

The average heat index is calculated to a sweltering 100.9°F (38.3°C). Take special precautions - heat exhaustion and heat cramps are expected. Heatstroke may occur with lengthy activity.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. 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 that combines both air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (wind, clothing, metabolic differences). 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. 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.
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. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 99.5°F (37.5°C) to 100.9°F (38.3°C), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.
