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 (wind, pregnancy, metabolic differences), and activity. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the 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. 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 surpasses the level the body can shed, body temperature begins to increase, and consequently, overheating and dehydration can occur, with varying severity.
