Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'real feel', 'feels like', or 'felt air temperature', is a calculated temperature value of how hot it feels when the moisture in the air is factored in. Additional factors like wind, pregnancy, differences in body mass, height, and shape, and activity influence one's weather impression. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact, and may raise the heat index additionally, 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.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. 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. 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.
