Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like', 'felt air temperature', 'apparent temperature', or 'real feel', is what the temperature feels like to the human body when the air temperature is combined with the relative humidity. Additional factors like differences in body mass, height, and shape, metabolic differences, clothing, and activity influence one's weather impression. 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 particularly important for children. 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. Excessive warmth is eliminated from the body by evaporation of sweat. 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.
