Be informed that the heat index values are oriented around shady conditions and gentle breezes. 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', is an aggregate value of air's warmth and moisture to show the human-felt temperature. Additional elements including metabolic differences, the level of physical activity, and attire have a role in shaping the individual's temperature perception. Direct sunlight exposure should be noted as it has the potential to increase the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly relevant to babies and toddlers. Young individuals are generally in more danger than adults due to their lower capacity to sweat. Moreover, their large skin surface in relation to their small bodies and the increased heat generation from their activities makes them more vulnerable.
The body's innate mechanism to counteract overheating is through perspiration, as it leverages the cooling effects of sweat evaporation. With a high level of moisture in the air, the evaporation process becomes less efficient, preventing the body from cooling down efficiently and resulting in a sensation of overheating. Excessive heat gain, when not shed effectively by the body, can result in increasing body temperatures and related hazards.
