Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'real feel', 'feels like', or 'felt air temperature', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. Additional factors like metabolic differences, differences in body mass, height, and shape, pregnancy, and activity influence one's weather impression. 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. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. When heat gain surpasses the level the body can shed, body temperature begins to increase, and consequently, overheating and dehydration can occur, with varying severity.
