: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'real feel', is the outcome of merging air's temperature and its humidity metrics. The perception of temperature can be subjective, varying based on activity and individual heat sensitivity, influenced by factors like wind, attire, and metabolic variations. Direct exposure to the sun's rays can enhance the felt temperature, increasing the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Children often fail to recognize the requirement to rest and rehydrate. Thirst, being a late symptom of dehydration, underlines the importance of maintaining hydration, especially during ongoing physical activities.
To achieve cooling, the human body employs perspiration, relying on the subsequent evaporation of sweat. When there is an excess of moisture in the atmosphere, the efficiency of the evaporation process is lessened, leading to less efficient body cooling and a sensation of overheating. Excessive heat that's not properly managed leads to increased body temperatures and resultant health issues.
