Heat index

August's mean heat index is calculated to be a sweltering 95°F (35°C). Extra safeguards are necessary to prevent heat exhaustion and heat cramps. Prolonged activity might cause heatstroke.
It is noted that heat index values are ascertained for locations in the shade and with gentle breezes. Being exposed to direct sunshine might trigger a heat index increase by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'apparent temperature', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. Depending on the activity and the individual's heat perception, which may vary due to factors including wind, clothing, and metabolic variations, this effect remains subjective. Keep aware, the sun, when shining directly, can intensify the heat experience, pushing the heat index up by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Young ones regularly neglect the requirement for rest and fluid replenishment. Thirst is a late stage of dehydration - so, it is necessary to keep hydrated, particularly during extended periods of physical exertion.
Perspiration is the body's default response to elevated temperatures, as it promotes the evaporation of sweat to achieve cooling. An increase in relative humidity retards evaporation, subsequently reducing the body's heat removal rate and leading to a sensation of being overly warm. Elevated heat gain compared to the body's release capability poses risks of dehydration and potential overheating.
