: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'real feel', is found by incorporating humidity levels into the air temperature measurement. The impact of temperature is individual, as people's perception of weather may change based on their body mass, height, and physical activity. 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 especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Youngsters generally face more threats than adults given their lesser ability to sweat. Coupled with their larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and higher heat production due to their activities, they are more endangered.
One way the human body deals with excessive warmth is by perspiring and allowing sweat to evaporate. When the level of relative humidity is elevated, evaporation diminishes, causing more warmth to be retained in the body than in dry air. Overheating dangers loom when the body's heat release mechanisms are overshadowed by excessive gain.
