Take into consideration that the heat index values are calculated for shade and light wind conditions. Exposure to direct sunshine can increase heat index values by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', 'apparent temperature', 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, wind, clothing, and differences in body mass, height, and shape affect individual temperature impact. Bear in mind that direct sunshine exposure increases weather impact, and may raise heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. 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.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. With a lot of moisture in the air, the evaporation process is not as effective, and the body does not cool down as efficiently, creating a perception of overheating. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 37.5°C (99.5°F) to 38.3°C (100.9°F), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.
