Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', 'feels like', or 'apparent temperature', is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. Additional factors like differences in body mass, height, and shape, wind, clothing, and activity influence one's weather impression. 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.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration. Excessive warmth is eliminated from the body by evaporation of sweat. 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.
