Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'real feel', 'feels like', or 'felt air temperature', is what the temperature feels like to the human body when the air temperature is combined with the relative humidity. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (wind, clothing, metabolic differences), and activity. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact, and may raise the heat index additionally, by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly important for children. 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 cools itself through perspiration, as excessive warmth is removed from the body through sweat evaporation. With a lot of moisture in the air, the evaporation process is not as effective, and the body does not cool down as efficiently, creating a perception of overheating. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 37.5°C (99.5°F) to 38.3°C (100.9°F), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.
