Regarding the heat index, one should be aware it's determined by shaded settings and mild winds. Exposure to the sun directly might heighten the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'real feel', measures the perceived warmth when incorporating the humidity present in the air. A person's impression of weather can be shaped by several aspects, among them metabolic variations, pregnancy, and levels of physical activity. Recognize that direct exposure to the sun can escalate the heat effect, potentially adding 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees to the heat index. Heat index values hold particular importance 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.
The physiological way the human body responds to excessive heat is by inducing perspiration, using sweat evaporation as a cooling mechanism. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. Temperature imbalances caused by excessive heat retention can trigger heat-related maladies.
In August, the average relative humidity is 83%.
