Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'apparent temperature', is a composite of temperature and humidity figures to convey how warm it feels. Elements of metabolic variation, physical activity, and clothing contribute to the effect of temperature on an individual. Keep it in mind, direct sunlight can augment the heat you experience, possibly pushing the heat index up by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are highly critical to babies and toddlers. Young children typically face greater hazards than adults because they do not sweat as much. Their larger skin surface in comparison to their little bodies and the high heat production from their active nature compounds their vulnerability.
When faced with excessive heat, the human body begins to perspire, utilizing the cooling benefits of sweat evaporation. When there is abundant moisture in the air, the body's cooling through the evaporation process becomes less effective, leading to the sensation of overheating. If heat absorption exceeds the body's cooling ability, body temperature can elevate, resulting in potential thermal illnesses.
