Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature' or 'felt air temperature', is a metric representing the sensation of warmth when air temperature and moisture come together. The individual's impression of temperature can be shaped by additional aspects such as metabolic variations, physical activity, and clothing. 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 hold great significance to children. Young ones are generally more prone to risk than adults due to their reduced ability to sweat. Their large skin surface area relative to their diminutive bodies and elevated heat production from their activities further enhance this risk.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. When there is abundant moisture in the air, the body's cooling through the evaporation process becomes less effective, leading to the sensation of overheating. Exceeding the body's heat disposal threshold results in a rise in body temperature and potential thermal disorders.
