This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (pregnancy, wind, clothing). Bear in mind that direct sunshine exposure increases weather impact, and may raise heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.

Take extra precautions. Protection against sun damage is required. The Sun's UV radiation is most powerful between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. To the extent possible, limit exposure to the direct sun during these hours. On bright days sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays should be worn. A hat with a wide brim is extremely helpful, as it can prevent roughly 50% of UV radiation from reaching the eyes. Protect yourself by liberally applying a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF. Sunscreen prevents sunburn and decreases the damaging effects of Sun's radiation on the immune system.
