Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. With direct sunlight, the heat index could increase by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'apparent temperature', joins air temperature with relative humidity to produce a temperature perception for humans. Depending on the activity and the individual's heat perception, which may vary due to factors including wind, clothing, and metabolic variations, this effect remains subjective. It is noteworthy that being in direct sunlight can enhance the weather's impact, raising the heat index by as much as 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly relevant to babies and toddlers. Children typically face more danger than adults as their sweat production is usually lower. Additionally, the bigger skin surface compared to their small size and the increased heat due to their activeness exacerbate the risk.
The natural method the human body uses to remove excess heat is by perspiring and letting sweat evaporate. In circumstances of high air temperature and humidity (high heat index), the body's perspiration is restricted, heightening the feeling of warmth. Rising body temperatures due to excess heat retention could signify impending heat disorders.
