Take into consideration that the heat index values are calculated for shade and light wind conditions. Exposure to direct sunshine can increase heat index values by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel', 'feels like', 'apparent temperature', or 'felt air temperature', is a calculated temperature value of how hot it feels when the moisture in the air is factored in. Additional factors like wind, clothing, pregnancy, and activity influence one's weather impression. Bear in mind that direct sunshine exposure increases weather impact, and may raise heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly important for children. Young children are generally more endangered than adults, as they usually less sweat. And also, due to larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and higher heat production as a result of their activity.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
