In July, the average heat index is evaluated at a sweltering 95.7°F (35.4°C). Take extra precautions, as heat cramps and heat exhaustion are possible. Sustained activity may result in heatstroke.

Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', 'apparent temperature', or 'feels like', is a measure of how hot it feels when the actual air humidity is factored in. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (pregnancy, wind, differences in body mass, height, and shape), and activity. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the 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.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration. Excessive warmth is eliminated from the body by evaporation of sweat. 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.

Tightly woven, loose-fitting clothes provide additional protection from the Sun.
