Heat index

The average heat index in August is calculated to be a blazing hot 113°F (45°C). Beware: Heat cramps and heat exhaustion are very likely. Heatstroke is imminent with prolonged activity.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. Exposure to direct sunshine can increase heat index values by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'real feel', 'felt air temperature', or 'feels like', is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (differences in body mass, height, and shape, metabolic differences, wind), and activity. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Children are often less aware of the need to rest and re-hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - it is vital to remain hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 99.5°F (37.5°C) to 100.9°F (38.3°C), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.
