Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', 'real feel', or 'felt air temperature', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (metabolic differences, pregnancy, differences in body mass, height, and shape). 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.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration. Excessive warmth is eliminated from the body by evaporation of sweat. With a lot of moisture in the air, the evaporation process is not as effective, and the body does not cool down as efficiently, creating a perception of overheating. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
