Heat index

The heat index value for August is estimated at a blisteringly hot 43°C (109.4°F). Attention: Heat exhaustion and heat cramps are anticipated. Prolonged effort can result in heatstroke.
Heat index data is primarily for areas with shade and subjected to light winds. Direct exposure to sunlight could raise the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'apparent temperature', is an estimation of the warmth sensation when considering humidity levels. This impact is subjective, influenced by the person's physical activity and individual heat perception, affected by factors including wind, attire, and metabolic differences. 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 essentially critical for children. Children frequently underestimate the importance of resting and drinking fluids. Thirst is a symptom of advanced dehydration - hence the need to hydrate regularly, especially during protracted physical exercises.
Perspiration, followed by sweat evaporation, is the human body's chief method to maintain a balanced temperature. When relative humidity is on the rise, it curtails evaporation, thereby reducing the heat elimination from the body and causing the feeling of being excessively hot. When heat uptake goes beyond the body's cooling mechanisms, there's a surge in body temperature, posing health risks.
