Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', 'felt air temperature', or 'real feel', is a measure that combines air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (wind, differences in body mass, height, and shape, metabolic differences), and activity. 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.
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 surpasses the level the body can shed, body temperature begins to increase, and consequently, overheating and dehydration can occur, with varying severity.
