Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', 'apparent temperature', or 'real feel', is a measure that combines air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (pregnancy, differences in body mass, height, and shape, 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 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 cools itself through perspiration, as excessive warmth is removed from the body through sweat evaporation. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.

Tightly woven, loose-fitting clothes provide additional protection from the Sun.
