Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like', 'apparent temperature', 'real feel', or 'felt air temperature', is what the temperature feels like to the human body when the air temperature is combined with the relative humidity. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (metabolic differences, differences in body mass, height, and shape, clothing), and activity. 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 particularly important for children. 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. A higher relative humidity affects normal body cooling by reducing the evaporation rate, subsequently lowering the rate at which the body cools and increasing the perception of heat. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
