Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'real feel', 'felt air temperature', or 'feels like', is what the temperature feels like to the human body when the air temperature is combined with the relative humidity. Additional factors like pregnancy, metabolic differences, differences in body mass, height, and shape, 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 especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Young children are generally more endangered than adults, as they usually less sweat. And also, due to larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and higher heat production as a result of their activity.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 99.5°F (37.5°C) to 100.9°F (38.3°C), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.
