How long do I have to be outside before I start to feel sick from the heat?

The answer depends on your physical condition, Dennis Cavanaugh from the National Weather Service said. People who are in good physical condition and are accustomed to the heat can stay outside in high temperatures longer than the elderly or those in poor physical shape. However, Cavanaugh warned, when the humidity is high it becomes difficult for everyone to stay outside in the heat for any length of time, regardless of physical condition.
