: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'felt air temperature', is a numerical representation of warmth when taking temperature and moisture levels into account. One's perception of temperature can vary depending on physical activity and individual heat sensitivity, influenced by factors like wind, attire, and metabolic variations. One must note that being under the direct sun can escalate the heat's effects, with the heat index possibly rising by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are extremely vital to babies and toddlers. Youths are typically more endangered than adults since they usually sweat less. Their larger skin surface concerning their smaller bodies and higher heat production due to activity further adds to their vulnerability.
