Keep in mind the heat index values are meant for areas in shade and with light wind. Direct sunlight can cause a surge in the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'feels like', takes into account both air temperature and humidity to illustrate what people actually feel. A person's impression of weather can be shaped by several aspects, among them metabolic variations, pregnancy, and levels of physical activity. Consider the fact that direct sun exposure can influence how hot one feels, potentially raising the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly relevant to children. Children frequently underestimate the necessity to rest and hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - thus, it is vital to stay hydrated, particularly during lengthy physical exercises.
The human body has a built-in cooling mechanism through perspiration; evaporating sweat dissipates the excess heat. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. As the body gains more heat than it can dissipate, there's a risk of increasing temperatures and resultant overheating.
