Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'apparent temperature', combines air temperature and relative humidity to represent a human perceived temperature equivalent. The influence of weather is personal, with varied individuals experiencing it differently due to differences in body mass, stature, and physical exertion levels. With the sun shining directly, it's crucial to understand that it can increase the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are quite important for babies and toddlers. Children often fail to recognize the requirement to rest and rehydrate. Thirst, being a late symptom of dehydration, underlines the importance of maintaining hydration, especially during ongoing physical activities.
For the human body, perspiration is the go-to method to regulate temperature, using sweat's evaporation to dissipate warmth. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. Inadequate heat shedding in the face of rising body temperatures hints at potential dehydration risks.
