Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like', 'real feel', 'felt air temperature', or 'apparent temperature', is a measure of how hot it feels when the actual air humidity is factored in. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (pregnancy, clothing, wind). 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. 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 cools itself through perspiration, as excessive warmth is removed from the body through sweat evaporation. When the relative humidity is high, the evaporation rate is reduced. The warmth is removed from the body at a lower rate, causing the body to retain more heat than it would in dry air. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 99.5°F (37.5°C) to 100.9°F (38.3°C), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.
