Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'real feel', is what the temperature feels like to the human body when the air temperature is combined with the relative humidity. A person's impression of weather can be shaped by several aspects, among them metabolic variations, pregnancy, and levels of physical activity. Direct sun exposure is noteworthy in its ability to escalate the felt temperature, potentially adding 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees to the heat index. Heat index values are quite important for babies and toddlers. 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 evaporation of sweat is a natural cooling mechanism of the human body, facilitated by perspiration. When the air contains significant moisture, the efficiency of the evaporation process decreases, preventing the body from cooling down effectively and creating a feeling of overheating. Excessive heat that's not properly managed leads to increased body temperatures and resultant health issues.
