Humidity and Heat Index

Humidity and the apparent temperature

Sponsored Links

The Heat Index - or the Apparent Temperature - is used to indicate how hot it feels when relative humidity is combined with temperature.

With increased humidity it feels hotter as indicated in the Heat Index table bellow:

Heat and Humidity Index Danger Zones

  • 90 - 104 : Heat cramps or heat exhaustion possible
  • 105 - 130 : Heat cramps or heat exhaustion likely, heatstroke possible
  • 130 and more : Heat stroke highly likely

Example - Apparent Temperature

From the table - with dry temperature 85 oF and relative humidity 80% - the apparent temperature - or Heat Index - is 97 oF.
