Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', or 'feels like', is a calculated temperature value of how hot it feels when the moisture in the air is factored in. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (metabolic differences, clothing, pregnancy). 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 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. 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.
