Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'felt air temperature', represents the fusion of temperature and moisture in the air to suggest how warm it feels. One's perception of weather can be shaped by other factors, involving metabolic differences, pregnancy, and physical exertion. In direct sunlight, the heat's impact can be heightened, potentially leading to an increase in the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are quite important for children. Young ones often do not realize the necessity to rest and replenish their fluids. Thirst is a delayed indication of dehydration - keeping hydrated, particularly in prolonged physical activity, is crucial.
Normally, the human body cools itself through perspiration, which removes excessive heat by evaporating sweat. In high relative humidity, the body's ability to evaporate heat is diminished, resulting in a heightened feeling of warmth. Inadequate heat shedding in the face of rising body temperatures hints at potential dehydration risks.
