Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'felt air temperature', is a metric representing the sensation of warmth when air temperature and moisture come together. One's perception of temperature can vary depending on physical activity and individual heat sensitivity, influenced by factors like wind, attire, and metabolic variations. 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 especially vital to children. Young ones are generally at greater risk than adults due to their limited sweating ability. In addition, their large skin surface relative to their small bodies and higher heat production from their activities add to their vulnerability.
As a reaction to high temperatures, the human body begins to perspire, using the evaporation of sweat to lower its temperature. 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. Elevated heat gain compared to the body's release capability poses risks of dehydration and potential overheating.
