Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel', 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', or 'feels like', is a measure that combines both air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. Additional factors like wind, clothing, differences in body mass, height, and shape, and activity influence one's weather impression. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact, and may raise the heat index additionally, 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. 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 surpasses the level the body can shed, body temperature begins to increase, and consequently, overheating and dehydration can occur, with varying severity.
