Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel', 'feels like', 'apparent temperature', 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 subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (pregnancy, metabolic differences, wind). 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. 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. 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. 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.
