Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like', 'apparent temperature', 'real feel', or 'felt air temperature', is a measure of how hot it feels when the actual air humidity is factored in. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (metabolic differences, wind, differences in body mass, height, and shape), 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 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, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. 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 exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
