Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like', 'felt air temperature', 'apparent temperature', or 'real feel', is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (wind, clothing, pregnancy). Bear in mind that direct sunshine exposure increases weather impact, and may raise heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Children are often less aware of the need to rest and re-hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - it is vital to remain hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.
The human body cools itself through perspiration, as excessive warmth is removed from the body through sweat evaporation. When the relative humidity is high, the evaporation rate is reduced. The warmth is removed from the body at a lower rate, causing the body to retain more heat than it would in dry air. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 99.5°F (37.5°C) to 100.9°F (38.3°C), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.
