Heat index

The average heat index in March is calculated to be a very hot 37°C (98.6°F). Take more safety measures, heat exhaustion and heat cramps are potential outcomes. Persistent activity might lead to heatstroke.
Consider that heat index readings are for situations in the shade and light wind. The presence of direct sunlight can raise the heat index values by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'feels like', is a metric representing the sensation of warmth when air temperature and moisture come together. The impact of weather is individual, with diverse individuals experiencing it differently due to variations in body mass, height, and activity levels. Direct sun rays can make one feel hotter, potentially raising the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values hold particular significance for children. Kids are usually more vulnerable than adults, given their lesser sweating ability. Along with their larger skin surface relative to their small stature and the excess heat due to their activity, their risk is amplified.
To achieve cooling, the human body employs perspiration, relying on the subsequent evaporation of sweat. In the presence of elevated relative humidity, the evaporation rate decreases. This reduction leads to increased body heat retention compared to conditions of dry air. Heat-related challenges, like dehydration, can be anticipated when body heat isn't managed effectively.
