Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'apparent temperature', is a measure that combines air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. Additional elements encompassing metabolic differences, the degree of physical activity, and attire can impact the individual's perception of temperature. One must note that being under the direct sun can escalate the heat's effects, with the heat index possibly rising by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are of high significance for children. Young kids are often more at risk than adults as they tend to perspire less. Besides, their skin surface is larger relative to their small bodies, and their increased heat output from their active lifestyle compounds their risk.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. With higher relative humidity, the rate of evaporation is reduced, resulting in increased heat retention in the body compared to drier air. Elevated heat gain compared to the body's release capability poses risks of dehydration and potential overheating.
