Heat index

Be informed that the heat index values are oriented around shady conditions and gentle breezes. Exposure to direct sunlight may make the heat index values climb by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'felt air temperature', is the outcome of merging air's temperature and its humidity metrics. Elements such as metabolic variations, pregnancy, and physical exertion can shape one's weather perception. 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 are especially vital to children. Children often miss understanding the importance of rest and rehydration. Thirst usually appears late during dehydration - therefore, maintaining hydration, particularly during long physical activities, is essential.
