Heat index

For most parts of May, the heat index is computed to be a blistering 40°C (104°F). Take more preventive steps, risk of heat exhaustion and heat cramps is elevated. Long activity may culminate in heatstroke.
It is crucial to understand that heat index figures are for shade and gentle wind conditions. Exposure to the sun directly might heighten the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'felt air temperature', evaluates the perceived heat by adding the effect of moisture in the air. The individual's experience of temperature can be shaped by numerous aspects such as metabolic variations, physical exertion, and attire. With direct sunlight, be aware that it might enhance the heat sensation, raising the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are extremely significant for children. Young children typically face greater hazards than adults because they do not sweat as much. Their larger skin surface in comparison to their little bodies and the high heat production from their active nature compounds their vulnerability.
One of the main methods the human body employs to cool down is by perspiring, as this process allows sweat to evaporate and remove excess heat. Under high air temperature and high humidity (high heat index) conditions, the body's ability to perspire is compromised, increasing the sensation of heat. If the body retains more heat than it can expel, the increasing temperature can lead to heat-related conditions.
