Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel', 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', or 'apparent temperature', is a measure of how hot it feels when the actual air humidity is factored in. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (pregnancy, metabolic differences, wind), and activity. 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. 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. 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.
