Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like', 'real feel', 'apparent temperature', or 'felt air temperature', is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (pregnancy, wind, clothing). 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. 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. When the relative humidity is high, the evaporation rate is reduced. The warmth is removed from the body at a lower rate, causing the body to retain more heat than it would in dry air. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
