: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'real feel', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. The influence of weather is personal, with varied individuals experiencing it differently due to differences in body mass, stature, and physical exertion levels. Consider that direct sun exposure can intensify the felt heat, adding potentially 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees to the heat index. Heat index values are quite important for babies and toddlers. Kids are usually in more danger than grown-ups as they tend to sweat less. Plus, their bigger skin surface in relation to their small frames and increased heat generation due to their activity level make them more susceptible.
Humans rely on perspiration as a cooling mechanism, wherein the evaporating sweat counteracts excessive warmth. During high air temperature and humidity (high heat index), the process of perspiration is hindered, intensifying the sensation of heat. When body heat isn't effectively managed, risks of dehydration and overheating amplify.
In October, the average relative humidity is 69.4%.
