Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'real feel', stands as a testimony to how temperature and humidity combine to impact our sense of warmth. This effect is subjective, differing among individuals based on their physical activity and perception of heat, which can be influenced by factors like wind, clothing, and metabolic variances. It is essential to be conscious of the fact that direct sunlight can intensify the felt heat, leading to an elevation in the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are highly critical for babies and toddlers. Children frequently do not comprehend the need for rest and hydration. Thirst is an advanced stage of dehydration - staying hydrated, especially during extended physical exercises, is essential.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. An increase in relative humidity retards evaporation, subsequently reducing the body's heat removal rate and leading to a sensation of being overly warm. If heat absorption exceeds the body's cooling ability, body temperature can elevate, resulting in potential thermal illnesses.
