Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', or 'feels like', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. Additional factors like metabolic differences, differences in body mass, height, and shape, clothing, and activity influence one's weather impression.

Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. 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.
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 exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
