Heat index

The average heat index in August is evaluated at a fiery hot 100.4°F (38°C). More safety actions are required, heat exhaustion and heat cramps are probable. Long-term activity may precipitate heatstroke.
Consider that heat index readings are for situations in the shade and light wind. Exposing to direct sunshine may enhance heat index values by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'feels like', is achieved by amalgamating air temperature with the relative humidity readings. The influence of weather is personal, with varied individuals experiencing it differently due to differences in body mass, stature, and physical exertion levels. One must note that being under the direct sun can escalate the heat's effects, with the heat index possibly rising by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are highly critical for babies and toddlers. Young individuals usually face greater risks than adults as their sweat production is less. Also, their larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and the high heat generation due to their activity contributes to their vulnerability.
To achieve cooling, the human body employs perspiration, relying on the subsequent evaporation of sweat. When relative humidity is on the rise, it curtails evaporation, thereby reducing the heat elimination from the body and causing the feeling of being excessively hot. Heat absorption that surpasses the body's shedding capability can lead to overheating and varying levels of dehydration.
