The maximum heat index (a.k.a. 'real feel'), which combines air temperature and relative humidity, is computed to be a life-threatening 52.2°C (126°F). Take into consideration that the heat index values are calculated for shade and light wind conditions. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Beware: Heat cramps and heat exhaustion are very likely. Heatstroke is imminent with prolonged activity.
