Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', or 'feels like', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (metabolic differences, differences in body mass, height, and shape, wind), and activity. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the heat index 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, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
