Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like', 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', or 'real feel', is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (pregnancy, wind, differences in body mass, height, and shape). 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 especially crucial for babies and toddlers. 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.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration. Excessive warmth is eliminated from the body by evaporation of sweat. When the relative humidity is high, the evaporation rate is reduced. The warmth is removed from the body at a lower rate, causing the body to retain more heat than it would in dry air. When heat gain surpasses the level the body can shed, body temperature begins to increase, and consequently, overheating and dehydration can occur, with varying severity.
