: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'apparent temperature', ties air temperature with relative humidity to produce the perceived temperature sensation. The experience of temperature can be subjective, varying based on the individual's activity and heat perception, influenced by factors like wind, attire, and metabolic variations. You should know that direct sun exposure can heighten weather effects, potentially elevating the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are extremely vital to babies and toddlers. Kids are usually more vulnerable than adults, given their lesser sweating ability. Along with their larger skin surface relative to their small stature and the excess heat due to their activity, their risk is amplified.
In high temperatures, perspiration kicks in, allowing the human body to cool down through the evaporation of sweat. With a lot of moisture in the air, the evaporation process is not as effective, and the body does not cool down as efficiently, creating a perception of overheating. If heat absorption exceeds the body's cooling ability, body temperature can elevate, resulting in potential thermal illnesses.
