Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', 'apparent temperature', or 'real feel', is a calculated temperature value of how hot it feels when the moisture in the air is factored in. Additional factors like differences in body mass, height, and shape, clothing, metabolic differences, and activity influence one's weather impression. 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. 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 surpasses the level the body can shed, body temperature begins to increase, and consequently, overheating and dehydration can occur, with varying severity.
