Heat index

For most parts of February, the heat index is appraised at a fiery hot 37°C (98.6°F). Use additional protective measures, heat cramps and heat exhaustion are possible outcomes. Continuous activity might lead to heatstroke.
Metrics for the heat index primarily focus on shaded spots and light wind conditions. Heat index values may surge by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees in the presence of direct sunlight.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'real feel', is the outcome of merging air's temperature and its humidity metrics. Physical activity, clothing, and metabolic variations are additional factors that impact an individual's perception of temperature. Consider the fact that direct sun exposure can influence how hot one feels, potentially raising the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values remain especially vital for babies and toddlers. Typically, children face more danger than adults as they usually perspire less. Their larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and increased heat output from their activities enhance their risk.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration. Excessive warmth is eliminated from the body by evaporation of sweat. When air moisture content is high, the cooling process through evaporation is not as efficient, leading to an ineffective body cooling process and a feeling of overheating. The body is at risk of dehydration and related complications when it fails to shed excessive heat.
