1 vote for 32/42 should be the other - I accidentally did the one I would prefer instead which one is worse.

Does 32°C air temperature with 42°C heat-index like more steamy and muggy than 39°C air temperature with 44°C heat-index ?

Obviously the higher temp and higher heat index would be worse.

32°C with a Heat Index of 42°C would result in a dewpoint of 27.1°C (relative humidity 75%)

39°C with a Heat Index of 44°C would result in a dewpoint of 20.3°C (relative humidity 34%)

So i think the latter is more bearable

Factoring into dew points I say the first one.
