Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature', 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', or 'real feel', 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, pregnancy, wind), 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 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.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
