Be informed that the heat index values are oriented around shady conditions and gentle breezes. An exposure to direct sunlight may lift the heat index values by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'apparent temperature', represents the fusion of temperature and moisture in the air to suggest how warm it feels. Additional elements including metabolic differences, the level of physical activity, and attire have a role in shaping the individual's temperature perception. When in direct sunlight, one should be cautious as it can raise the heat index by as much as 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are quite important for babies and toddlers. Young individuals usually face more risks than adults due to their lower sweat production. Their large skin surface area relative to their tiny bodies and high heat production from their activities adds to their risk.
Sweat evaporation, driven by perspiration, is the method the human body uses to rid itself of excessive warmth. With a lot of moisture in the air, the evaporation process is not as effective, and the body does not cool down as efficiently, creating a perception of overheating. When the body is unable to balance heat gain, its temperature elevates, which may induce thermal illnesses.
