Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature', 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', or 'real feel', 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 activity, differences in body mass, height, and shape, metabolic differences, and wind affect individual temperature impact. 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 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.

High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated.
