Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel', 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', or 'apparent temperature', combines air temperature and relative humidity to represent a human perceived temperature equivalent. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (differences in body mass, height, and shape, wind, metabolic differences), and activity.

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.
