Heat index

During July, the heat index is estimated at a torrid 100.4°F (38°C). Preventive measures are required to mitigate the risk of heat cramps and heat exhaustion. Continuous activity may precipitate heatstroke.
Remember that heat index calculations are made for conditions in the shade with light wind. Direct sunshine exposure could raise heat index values by as much as 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'felt air temperature', arises from combining readings of air temperature and relative moisture content. This effect is subjective, differing among individuals based on their physical activity and perception of heat, which can be influenced by factors like wind, clothing, and metabolic variances. You should know that direct sun exposure can heighten weather effects, potentially elevating the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values hold particular significance for children. Children frequently do not understand the need for recuperation and hydration. Thirst, being a late manifestation of dehydration, underlines the need to hydrate frequently, especially when engaging in prolonged physical exercises.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. 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. Temperature imbalances caused by excessive heat retention can trigger heat-related maladies.
