Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', or 'feels like', is what the temperature feels like to the human body when the air temperature is combined with the relative humidity. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (wind, clothing, metabolic differences). Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. 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.
The human body cools itself through perspiration, as excessive warmth is removed from the body through sweat evaporation. A higher relative humidity affects normal body cooling by reducing the evaporation rate, subsequently lowering the rate at which the body cools and increasing the perception of heat. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
