What is the heat index?
The heat index is one of those figures that’s often recited but rarely explained. With that said, let’s take a look at how it’s calculated and why it’s important.
You’ve probably heard many times “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.” Well it’s actually both, and the heat index is a combination of these two values. As a quick example, to the human body 82° F at 90% relative humidity feels the same as 90° F at 40% relative humidity. In this example the heat index is calculated as 91° F for both cases.
Why do these two different combinations of temperature and humidity feel the same? It’s due to your body’s cooling process. When you sweat, it’s the evaporation of your perspiration that cools you. However, the rate of evaporation decreases as humidity levels increase. Therefore, your body has a harder time cooling itself in a humid environment. As a result, you feel hotter as the humidity increases, even if the air temperature remains the same.
