Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature', 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', or 'real feel', is a measure that combines both air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (differences in body mass, height, and shape, pregnancy, wind), and activity. 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. Children are often less aware of the need to rest and re-hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - it is vital to remain hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. 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.
