When you have high temperatures, factor in the humidity and you get sweat.
The heat index or humiture or humidex temperature is the temperature felt by the skin rather than the actual temperature due to the humidity level. In hot temperature, the human body normally will sweat and heat is removed from the evaporation of the sweat. For example, when the temperature is 90 ° with 70% relative humidity, the heat index is 106 °F. For people who have to work outdoors, heat index is important. The National Weather Service actually has published the effects of heat index:
80-91 Degrees: fatigue is possible with prolonged exposure and activity. Continuing activity could result in heat cramps
Over 130: heat stroke is imminent.
Drink lots of water and stay safe!
