Heat index

In May, the heat index is computed to be a life-threatening hot 45°C (113°F). Remain alert: Heat exhaustion and heat cramps are predicted. Extended effort can lead to heatstroke.
When considering the heat index, it's pivotal to note it is for shade and mild wind conditions. The heat index has the possibility to be enhanced by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees when there is direct sun exposure.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'felt air temperature', blends air temperature and moisture content to represent the felt temperature to 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. Direct sun rays can make one feel hotter, potentially raising the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values hold particular importance for children. 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.
When faced with excessive heat, the human body begins to perspire, utilizing the cooling benefits of sweat evaporation. In the presence of high relative humidity, the evaporation rate diminishes, resulting in the body retaining more warmth compared to dry conditions. When the body's heat gain surpasses its removal capacity, body temperature starts to climb, leading to potential heat-related ailments.
