Weather Glossary: A's

It measures the increased physiological heat stress and discomfort associated with higher than comfortable humidities. The apparent temperature is less than the actual air temperature when the humidity is relatively low and that the apparent temperature indicates the reduced stress and increased comfort associated with the higher rate of evaporative cooling of the skin. Apparent temperatures greater than 80°F (27°C) are likely to produce some discomfort. Values in excess of 105°F (41°C) may be dangerous and even life-threatening, with severe heat exhaustion or heat stroke possible if the exposure is prolonged or physical activity is high. The degree of stress may vary with age, health, and body characteristics. The apparent temperature does not consider the effects of air movement (wind speed) or exposure to sunshine on the degree of discomfort or stress.
