March's heat index is computed to be a scorching 44°C. Remain alert
: Heat exhaustion and heat cramps are predicted. Extended effort can lead to heatstroke.
In the scope of the heat index, its values resonate with shade and light wind conditions. Uninterrupted exposure to the sun may boost the heat index values by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'feels like', is an aggregate value of air's warmth and moisture to show the human-felt temperature. An individual's perception of weather can be affected by a variety of elements including metabolic differences, being pregnant, and their level of physical exertion. Under direct sun rays, the felt temperature might be heightened, with the heat index increasing by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values hold particular significance for children. Young individuals are generally in more danger than adults due to their lower capacity to sweat. Moreover, their large skin surface in relation to their small bodies and the increased heat generation from their activities makes them more vulnerable.
Evaporation of sweat is the main factor behind the cooling effect of perspiration in the human body. Under conditions of high temperature and humidity (enhanced heat index), sweat production is compromised, exacerbating the sensation of warmth. The body is at risk of dehydration and related complications when it fails to shed excessive heat.
In March, the average relative humidity is 83.8%.

, with an average maximum UV index of 12, are months with the highest UV index. A UV Index value of 11, and more, symbolizes an extreme threat to health from unprotected exposure to Sun's UV rays for ordinary individuals.Note
: A maximum high UV index of 12 in March translates into the following recommendations:
Execute all crucial precautions. Warding off sun exposure is non-negotiable. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., when UV radiation is at its strongest, limit direct exposure to the Sun and note that shade structures may not provide full sun protection. A wide-brim hat offers excellent sun protection for the eyes, ears, face, and neck. Sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection significantly reduce eye damage from sun exposure. Despite the overcast weather, sunscreen with SPF of at least 30 should be applied liberally and reapplied often, particularly after swimming or an outdoor workout. Stay aware! UV radiation is magnified when reflecting off sand and water.
