Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'felt air temperature', determines the feeling of heat when you account for the relative humidity. Additional factors encompassing metabolic differences, the level of physical activity, and clothing can impact the individual's perception of temperature. By being directly under the sun, it's possible for the felt temperature to increase by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values hold particular significance for children. Young individuals usually face greater risks than adults as their sweat production is less. Also, their larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and the high heat generation due to their activity contributes to their vulnerability.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. When the level of relative humidity is elevated, evaporation diminishes, causing more warmth to be retained in the body than in dry air. When the body's heat gain surpasses its removal capacity, body temperature starts to climb, leading to potential heat-related ailments.
