Heat index

August's heat index is estimated at a tropical 34°C (93.2°F). Special measures are necessary to avoid heat cramps and heat exhaustion. Persistent activity could result in heatstroke.
One should be cognizant that the heat index values are tailored for shaded spots and mild winds. An exposure to direct sunlight may lift the heat index values by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'apparent temperature', shows a temperature sensation when both heat and moisture conditions are combined. An individual's temperature experience can be influenced by extra factors, including metabolic differences, activity levels, and clothing. Taking into account that direct sunlight can boost the heat effect, the heat index may rise by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are quite important for children. Young ones are generally more prone to risk than adults due to their reduced ability to sweat. Their large skin surface area relative to their diminutive bodies and elevated heat production from their activities further enhance this risk.
