Spring Lake, NC

Temperature

Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. With the exposure to direct sunlight, the heat index may be increased by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', or 'real feel', is what the temperature feels like to the human body when the air temperature is combined with the relative humidity. Additional factors like differences in body mass, height, and shape, metabolic differences, pregnancy, and activity influence one's weather impression. Bear in mind that direct sunshine exposure increases weather impact, and may raise heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly important for children. Young children are generally more endangered than adults, as they usually less sweat. And also, due to larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and higher heat production as a result of their activity.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration. Excessive warmth is eliminated from the body by evaporation of sweat. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 99.5°F (37.5°C) to 100.9°F (38.3°C), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.

Take precautions against overexposure. Fair-skinned people may get burned in less than 20 minutes. Seek shade and minimize exposure to direct Sun in a period between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV radiation is most intense; keep in mind that shade structures like parasols or canopies do not provide perfect sun protection.

Tightly woven, loose-fitting clothes provide additional protection from the Sun.
