Take into consideration that the heat index values are calculated for shade and light wind conditions. With the exposure to direct sunlight, the heat index may be increased by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', or 'real feel', is a measure that combines both air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. Additional factors like activity, pregnancy, differences in body mass, height, and shape, and metabolic differences affect individual temperature impact. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact, and may raise the heat index additionally, by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly important for children. 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
The average relative humidity in August is 85%.

Practice all-important precautions. Light skin people may get burned in less than 5 minutes. The Sun's UV radiation is most powerful between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. To the extent possible, limit exposure to the direct sun during these hours. On bright days sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays should be worn. A hat with a wide brim is extremely helpful, as it can prevent roughly 50% of UV radiation from reaching the eyes. A broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30+ should be liberally applied and re-applied every two hours, and immediately after an outdoor workout or a swim.
