Heat index

Regarding the heat index, one should be aware it's determined by shaded settings and mild winds. Exposing to direct sunshine may enhance heat index values by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'real feel', is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. The effect is experienced differently by individuals, hinging on unique characteristics such as body mass, stature, and level of activity. Direct sunlight exposure should be noted as it has the potential to increase the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly important for children. Younglings are generally more in peril than adults due to their reduced perspiration. Coupled with a larger skin surface relative to their tiny bodies and greater heat production because of their activity, they become more at risk.
The primary way humans combat excessive warmth is by perspiring, letting sweat evaporate and cool the body. In the presence of abundant moisture in the atmosphere, the cooling process through evaporation is hindered, causing the body to feel excessively warm. The body faces dehydration threats when its cooling efforts are outpaced by excessive heat gain.
