Heat Index defined: The real feel of heat and humidity

ROCHESTER, NY (WROC) – Air temperature can be a tricky thing, especially when there are multiple variables in the air that have an effect on temperature and the way it feels. Having an air temperature under dry conditions is one story, but feeling that same temperature in a much more humid atmosphere can make the actual temperature feel a whole lot hotter and more uncomfortable than it actually is. This ‘real-feel’ to the air found especially during the “heat” of summer is known as the heat index. 

The heat index is defined as how hot the air actually feels like when factoring in both air temperature and relative humidity. It is also known as the apparent temperature, which is the temperature perceived by humans. The heat index can be calculated using either dew point, or relative humidity values compared with the actual air temperature.

Fun Fact: The index was developed by Robert G. Steadman in 1979 after various studies and analysis. 

The NWS then performed further analysis to develop an equation that would predict heat index values given the current air temperature and relative humidity. Below is a chart of some these values:

The heat index heavily relies on how much moisture there is in the air.  For example, an air temperature at 85℉ with a dew point of 70℉, or 63% relative humidity will actually feel like 90℉. This new value is considered to be the heat index. However, if you have an air temperature at 85℉ with a dew point of 60℉ and relative humidity of 45%, it will still feel like 85℉. The heat index can even be lower than the temperature with a low enough relative humidity. You can calculate the heat index yourself by clicking here. Try it!

When your body gets hot, its natural response is to sweat. If there’s a high amount of moisture in the air, it’s harder for the sweat on your skin to evaporate back into the atmosphere. This makes it difficult to regulate your body temperature especially in hot and humid and can take a toll on your body. Below are some of the effects of intense heat:

Things to note:

Excessive Heat Advisories are issued when the heat index reaches 105℉ to 104℉ here in WNY within the next 12 to 24 hours. 

An Excessive Heat Watch is issued when there is a potential for the heat index value to reach or exceed 105℉ within the next 24 to 48 hours.

An Excessive Heat Warning is issued when the heat index value is expected to reach or exceed 105℉ within the next 12 to 24 hours.

I've moved a lot, and a city never feels like home until I can anticipate how the day's weather will feel. I don't go on instinct alone. My sense of the weather comes by combining data from the morning's report—temperature, along with humidity, wind speed, and precipitation—with accumulated experience.

Most weather reports include a metric that supposedly tells you the same thing. AccuWeather's proprietary formula is called RealFeel, and other stations use a similar metric called Feels Like. Whatever it's called, this number purports to tell you how the air outside will feel against your skin. But can the AccuWeather, the Weather Channel, or even Al Roker know you like that? What is the methodology behind this meteorologic metric?

Measuring how humans experience temperature isn't new. For instance, we all instinctively know that a stiff wind will make the air feel cooler. However, nobody had assigned a number to this feeling until the mid-1940s, when two Antarctic explorers observed that the wind actually caused water to freeze at higher than normal temperatures. Using plastic vials of water in a variety of wind and temperature combinations, they eventually published a table where you could get perceived temperature by cross referencing one reading from a thermometer and another from an anenometer. This ended up being too simplistic however, and eventually had to be amended with data that accounted for human factors like body type, clothing, and activity.

A few decades later, other researchers tried to measure perceived temperature in the other direction. Like wind and chill, humidity had a long anecdotal correlation with heat. In 1978, a researcher named George Winterling developed the heat index in an attempt to codify this correlation. Air always has some amount of water vapor. The percentage of water vapor in a given volume of air is called its humidity. The cooler air gets, the less water vapor it can hold. When the temperature drops far enough—called the dew point—the air particles become too densely packed to store any more vapor, so it starts to condense on solid surfaces. The higher the dew point, the more humid the air. Humans regulate their temperature by sweating, and we have a hard time doing so if the air is already sticky with moisture.

Wind chill and the heat index showed meteorologists two things: First, it was possible to quantify the way people experience weather. Second, they both proved that you needed more than weather data to do so. Combining the two is one of the easiest ways to determine perceived temperature, and this is basically how Feels Like temperatures are calculated. But external conditions aren't the only thing that determines how people feel temperature.

Thanks perhaps to the invention of the thermostat, the way we experience temperature is well studied. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers maintains the standard for thermal comfort, drawn from a broad canon of peer-reviewed research. Some of it comes from physics: The human body burns a certain amount of energy a day, which is dissipated according to the surface area of their body. This can be measured through metabolism. But this doesn't show what kind of temperature a person prefers.

Climate control research uses individuals' physical discomfort as a feedback mechanism to generate its standards for ideal temperatures. But even indoors, temperature feels different to different people. Right now, I'm slightly shivering in a hoody zipped to my chin while an editor sitting directly behind me is working comfortably in a short sleeve shirt. Obviously, things get way more complicated outside.

One of the best known weather metrics is AccuWeather's RealFeel. It uses not only wind and humidity, but also a bunch of other external data points like time of year and type of ground cover, says Mike Steinberg, a meteorologist with AccuWeather who helped develop RealFeel. But, he says, he and his colleagues built their model around the human experience, starting with the physics of heat transfer between the human body and the atmosphere. A person's metabolism determines how well they regulate temperature, and along with clothing will have the biggest influence on how they experience the weather.

"What we did was assume an average person in terms of body size and physical capability, and we also assumed they were dressed appropriately for the weather," he said.

To calibrate their model to what people actually feel, Steinberg and his colleagues ran RealFeel through a gauntlet of user surveys, and adjusted the algorithms accordingly. But even with physics, observed data, and surveys, Steinberg admits some estimation went into RealFeel. Other AccuWeather meteorologists, he says, felt like certain geographic areas and conditions altered perceived temperature in ways that couldn't be measured through data collection. Based on these meteorologists' expertise, Steinberg says he and his co-authors adjusted things locally.

To date, there have been over 100 different systems of measurement developed to measure how people experience temperature. Each has a niche where it performs better than the others, but none are perfect. Some are crude, and useful only for quick estimates, and others are more sophisticated, using multiple variables to generate a measurement for subjective experience.

Perceived temperature might not ever nail your experience, but the point is more to give a general impression of how the weather will feel to a group of people living in geographic proximity. And sometimes the only way you can measure the difference between an 80 degree day in Central Park versus the same temperature in Golden Gate Park can be measured by the spare clothes you bring to each: a dry shirt for New York, and a hooded sweatshirt for San Francisco.

Depersonalization vs Derealization

Have you ever stepped out of the house in the morning and thought I know it would be cold, but perhaps not this cold!

The temperatures that you normally see on our website represent the temperature of the air, but this takes no account of how we actually experience the temperature. It is our ‘feels like’ temperature that gives you a better idea about how the weather will actually feel when you step outdoors.

Our ‘feels like’ temperature takes into account wind speeds and humidity to assess how the human body actually feels temperature.  For example in winter a strong wind can feel much colder than the measured temperature would indicate. Conversely on a humid day in summer it can feel uncomfortably hotter than the air temperatures would suggest on their own. In both instances the impacts of the temperature, wind and humidity can be much greater and the feels like temperature should allow users to make a better assessment of conditions outdoors.

But how do you actually calculate the ‘feels like’ temperature?

We calculate a ‘feels like temperature by taking into account the expected air temperature, relative humidity and the strength of the wind at around 5 feet (the typical height of an human face) combined with our understanding of how heat is lost from the human body during cold and windy days.

On windy days the speed of moisture evaporation from your skin increases and serves to move heat away from your body making it feel colder than it actually is. The exception to this rule, however, is when higher temperatures are concerned. At higher temperatures, wind chill is considered far less significant. Instead humidity plays a greater role. When a human being perspires, the water in his or her sweat evaporates. This results in the cooling of the body as heat is carried away from it. When humidity is high, the rate of evaporation and cooling is reduced, resulting in it feeling hotter than it actually is.

Using these facts we use a formula to adjust the air temperature based on our understanding of wind chill at lower temperatures, heat index at higher temperatures and a combination of the two in between.

You can get ‘feels like’ temperatures on our five day forecast and on our Android and iPhone apps.

AccuWeather

Weather forecast service provider

AccuWeather Inc. is an American media company that provides commercial weather forecasting services worldwide.

AccuWeather was founded in 1962 by Joel N. Myers, then a Pennsylvania State University graduate student working on a master's degree in meteorology. His first customer was a gas company in Pennsylvania. While running his company, Myers also worked as a member of Penn State's meteorology faculty. The company adopted the name "AccuWeather" in 1971.

AccuWeather is headquartered in State College, Pennsylvania, with offices at 7 World Trade Center in Manhattan in addition to Wichita, Kansas, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Internationally, AccuWeather has offices in Montreal, Tokyo, Beijing, Seoul, and Mumbai.

Company profile[edit]

AccuWeather provides weather forecasts and warnings and additional weather products and services, with clients worldwide in media, business and government, including more than half of the Fortune 500 companies and thousands of other businesses globally.[1] It also runs the free, advertising-supported website AccuWeather.com, an online weather provider. Third-party web analytics providers Alexa and SimilarWeb rated the site as the 200th most visited website in the United States, as of November 2015.[2]

AccuWeather's forecasts and warning services are based on weather information derived from numerous sources, including weather observations and data gathered by the National Weather Service and meteorological organizations outside the United States, and from information provided by non-meteorological organizations such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the armed forces as well as its own proprietary models and algorithms. AccuWeather employs[when?] just under 500 people, more than 100 of whom are operational meteorologists.[3] In 2020, AccuWeather requested and received between $5million and $10million in aid under the Paycheck Protection Program to avoid having to let go 462 employees due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[4]

AccuWeather operates a 24-hour commercially sponsored weather channel known as The Local AccuWeather Channel, which is similar to the now defunct NBC Weather Plus. The Local AccuWeather Channel launched in 2005 as one of the first over-the-air subchannel networks, but carriage declined as stations decided to carry entertainment content instead. As of 2021, it is carried by only a small scattering of stations.[1] AccuWeather operates a 24/7 weather channel known as The AccuWeather Network available on Spectrum TV, DIRECTV, Verizon Fios and Frontier cable as well as Philo and FuboTV streaming services. The network broadcasts pre-recorded national and regional weather forecasts, analysis of ongoing weather events, and weather-related news, along with local weather segments. The network's studio and master control facilities are based at AccuWeather's headquarters in State College, Pennsylvania.[5]

In 2006, AccuWeather acquired WeatherData, Inc. of Wichita. Renamed AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions in 2011, the Wichita facility now[when?] houses AccuWeather's specialized severe weather forecasters.[citation needed]

Leadership[edit]

Dr. Joel N. Myers, the founder of AccuWeather, serves[when?] as CEO of the firm and chairman of the board. His brother Evan Myers[when?] served as Chief Operating Officer until 2020 [6] and Senior Vice President. His other brother, Barry Lee Myers, served as Chief Executive Officer from 2007 to January 1, 2019.[7]

Products and services[edit]

The AccuWeather app on Android

The regular weather provider for Bloomberg Television, AccuWeather also provides guest commentary on major TV networks. AccuWeather, through the United Stations Radio Networks (previously through Westwood One until 2009), also provides weather for over 800 radio stations and over 700 newspapers, including WINS in New York City and WBBM in Chicago. During severe-weather episodes, AccuWeather employees have been called upon by television journalists such as Larry King,[8]Geraldo Rivera,[9] and Greta van Susteren[10] for expert commentary. Accuweather's broadcast meteorologist Jim Kosek became an internet sensation in 2010 due to what the company describe as his "all-out, manic style" announcements, e.g. of a blizzard forecast as a "snowmaggedon".[11] Other well known AccuWeather meteorologists are Bernie Rayno, Brittany Boyer, Geoff Cornish and Melissa Constanzer. AccuWeather's Chief Meteorologist is Jonathan Porter and Dan Kottlowski is AccuWeather's lead hurricane forecaster. Elliot Abrams retired from AccuWeather in 2019 <https://www.inquirer.com/entertainment/accuweather-elliot-abrams-retiring-20190228.html> after working at AccuWeather for more than 50 years.

AccuWeather produces local weather videos each day for use on their own website, on the Local AccuWeather Network, on wired Internet and mobile application and websites.[1] The mobile application has a minute-by-minute forecast[12] and also collects crowd-sourced weather observations.[13] The company is also active in the areas of convergence[1] and digital signage.[14] They have added a user-contributed video section to their photo gallery.

In 2015, AccuWeather entered into a joint venture with the Chinese company Huafeng Media Group, receiving the sole rights to deliver forecasts made by the China Meteorological Administration, a government agency that controls Huafeng.[15]

Besides its forecasting services to individual consumers, AccuWeather performs weather-related predictive analytical services for businesses, such as determining how weather conditions have influenced past sales history and advising businesses on adapting their sales strategy for future weather events.[16]

The Local AccuWeather Channel[edit]

Starting in 2005, AccuWeather offered The Local AccuWeather Channel as a digital subchannel to television stations.[17] By 2021, the service had quietly been discontinued.[18]

National weather channel[edit]

In 2015, Verizon FiOS replaced The Weather Channel with a new 24/7 all-weather television network called "The AccuWeather Channel". This followed earlier negotiations among AccuWeather, The Weather Channel, and DirecTV. The AccuWeather Network is a separate operation from "The Local AccuWeather Channel", which continues to run in selected markets across the country. It became the third 24/7 weather network to launch on American Television, after The Weather Channel in 1982 and WeatherNation TV in 2011.[19] The AccuWeather Network is also carried on Spectrum TV, DIRECTV, Frontier, and on Philo and FuboTV streaming services. On August 1, 2018, the AccuWeather Network began on DIRECTV nationwide.

AccuWeather Now[edit]

In July 2021, AccuWeather announced a companion over-the-top channel, AccuWeather Now, that will focus mainly on viral videos and shared social media content, with intent to launch the feed by the end of the year.[18]

RealFeel temperature[edit]

AccuWeather created a unified and proprietary apparent temperature system known as "The AccuWeather Exclusive RealFeel Temperature" and has used the quantity in its forecasts and observations. The formula for calculating this value[20] incorporates the effects of temperature, wind, humidity, sunshine intensity, cloudiness, precipitation, and elevation on the human body, similar to the rarely used (but public domain) wet-bulb globe temperature. AccuWeather has been granted a United States patent on The RealFeel Temperature,[21] but the formula is a trade secret and has not been reviewed by other meteorological authorities. In response to AccuWeather's "RealFeel", The Weather Channel introduced their "FeelsLike" temperature reading.[22]

Criticisms[edit]

Long-term forecasting practices[edit]

In April 2012, AccuWeather drastically shortened the range of their publicly available historical data from 15 years to 1 year. They also began increasing the range of their forecast from 15 days to 25 days, 45 days, and, by 2016, to 90 days. These hyper-extended forecasts have been compared to actual results several times and shown to be misleading, inaccurate and sometimes less accurate than simple predictions based on National Weather Service averages over a 30-year period.[23][24] It is generally accepted that the upper limit on how far one can reliably forecast is between one and two weeks, a limit based on both limits in observation systems and the chaotic nature of the atmosphere.[23][25][26] An informal assessment conducted by Jason Samenow at The Washington Post asserted that AccuWeather's forecasts at the 25-day range were often wrong by as many as ten degrees, no better than random chance and that the forecasts missed half of the fourteen days of rain that had occurred during the month of the assessment.[27] AccuWeather responds that it does not claim absolute precision in such extremely long forecasts and advises users to only use the forecast to observe general trends in the forecast period,[28] but this contrasts with the way the forecasts are presented.[29] An assessment from the Post determined that the 45-day forecasts were not even able to predict trends accurately, and that, although the forecasts did not decrease in accuracy with time, the forecasts were so far off even in the short range as to be useless.[29] The Post commissioned another assessment from Penn State University professor Jon Nese, comparing several more cities to Accuweather's predictions; that assessment, while acknowledged as being limited to a single season, acknowledged that AccuWeather's forecasts were of value in short-range forecasting while also noting that their long-range forecasts beyond one week were less accurate than climatological averages.[24]

National Weather Service[edit]

The National Weather Service, which provides large amounts of the data that AccuWeather repackages and sells for profit, also provides that same information for free by placing it in the public domain.

On April 14, 2005, U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) introduced the "National Weather Service Duties Act of 2005" in the U.S. Senate. The legislation would have forbidden the National Weather Service from providing any such information directly to the public, and the legislation was generally interpreted as an attempt by AccuWeather to profit off of taxpayer-funded weather research by forcing its delivery through private channels. AccuWeather denies this and maintains it never intended to keep weather information out of the hands of the general public.[30] The bill did not come up for a vote. Santorum received campaign contributions from AccuWeather's president, Joel Myers.[31]

On October 12, 2017, President Donald Trump nominated AccuWeather CEO Barry Lee Myers, the younger brother of the company's founder, to head the National Weather Service's parent administration, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It was noted that unlike 11 of the previous 12 NOAA administrators, Myers lacks an advanced scientific degree, instead holding bachelor's and master's degrees in business and law.[32] Barry Myers stepped down as CEO of AccuWeather on January 1, 2019 and completely divested himself of any ownership of AccuWeather in accordance with his pledge to the Office of Government Ethics and the U.S. Senate. After two years of inaction on the nomination, Myers withdrew his consideration for nomination on November 12, 2019 due to ill health,[33] though allegations of a hostile workplace and pervasive sexual harassment while Myers was at AccuWeather are rumored to have stalled it.[34][35] Myers sent a letter to the Washington Post in 2019 to address these allegations.

iOS location privacy[edit]

In August 2017, security researcher Will Strafach intercepted traffic from the AccuWeather iPhone app to discover that it inadvertently sent location information to Reveal Mobile through a faulty SDK, even when customers have not given permission to share location information. ZDnet independently verified this information.[36] AccuWeather immediately released an update to the App Store which removed the Reveal Mobile SDK.[37]

I get the MOST ACCURATE weather from this App !
Many weather channels & apps to choose from . I use to go by other sources , but most of them never told me the REAL WEATHER ,LIKE ACCUWEATHER DOES .It also gives more information about what to except on Winds ,Rain , Snow , and with Hourly , Daily or Weekly . So when it’s time for a Vacation or just going out shopping for the Day , I know exactly what to wear , and what items , like a Umbrella or Jacket for the cooler weather in the evening. I Have DELETED ALL MY OTHER WEATHER APPS with mistrusted details ! This one App tells me everything I need for any Outing .Makes my Days Happy , when I’m prepared .Went to Family Reunion, Very Nice Warm 80’s Weather , until the middle of outside Reunion. It started to pour down the rain , and chilled off quickly .I had a change of warmer clothes ,and raincoat & rainboots ,with a Umbrella in my Car .Sure made me tell everyone about Accuweather ,when they all kept asking me , how did you know to be prepared for a such a sudden change ! I felt like I was the Smartest Person Out Of the Whole Family !
Thank You Accuweather , you are my Daily Best Friend !

Do Not Use The Future Radar

Whatever you do, do not use the future radar. The future radar is not accurate at all. It showed that a thunderstorm would disappear by the time it would hit my area. WRONG. The thunderstorm that is a 5 miles away from my area hits me and brings penny sized hail and flooding rain. Accuweather’s algorithm for using a future radar is terrible. After you get an hour into the future radar mode, it starts broadening out the rain and sometimes exaggerates what you will see. For example, sometimes it says a shower will later turn into a hailstorm but that never happens. Sometimes it will say a thunderstorm will weaken and turn into a shower, but instead it will intensify into a hailstorm. Do not rely on the future radar for anything. All of the other features are pretty accurate. I like how it shows the rain total for the day and the night (could be inaccurate when it comes to spotty thunderstorms). The app is good with only banner ads (at least there is no video ads). I have been using accuweather for 2 years now and I have been satisfied using it, but if you are looking for an accurate future radar I would look somewhere else. Minutecast is very accurate, and I was very impressed when I first saw how accurate it was. This app is one of the first to use a minute by minute system of forecasting and I am very thankful for finding this app on the App Store.

Mostly great!

There are tons of weather apps available. The devs description is accurate, but I will tell you my top Pros/Cons. PROS: ~ Love the radar. Gives you an option to view the past or future. ~ A slick “Minute by Minute” wheel that pinpoints precipitation for the next two hours. ~ A ton of features that don’t overwhelm you when launching the app. The basic stuff is clearly and nicely laid out and simple taps/swipes will get you to deeper details if desired. CONS: * The “location services” pin points my house right on the mark. But, the app declares the location is a nearby city instead of the one my house is in. * I have several weather apps that use location services plus my own house thermometer. AccuWeather many times states that it is 4-6 degrees cooler than all the others. * That’s it. Some may feel those are picky things, but it is enough to knock off a star IMHO. Overall, a great app. I was happy to pay the $4 to support the devs and also get rid of the ads. 😄

UPDATE: AccuWeather no longer offers a pay once to get rid of ads. It is now a monthly or yearly fee. Besides costing much more, “family sharing” means nothing now. EVERY family member must pay the on-going fee if you want to get rid of the annoying ads. In other words, my pay once fee does not get grandfathered in. 👎🏻

"It's not the heat, it's the humidity".  That's a partly valid phrase you may have heard in the summer, but it's actually both.  The heat index, also known as the apparent temperature, is what the temperature feels like to the human body when relative humidity is combined with the air temperature.  This has important considerations for the human body's comfort.  When the body gets too hot, it begins to perspire or sweat to cool itself off.  If the perspiration is not able to evaporate, the body cannot regulate its temperature.  Evaporation is a cooling process.  When perspiration is evaporated off the body, it effectively reduces the body's temperature.  When the atmospheric moisture content (i.e. relative humidity) is high, the rate of evaporation from the body decreases.  In other words, the human body feels warmer in humid conditions.  The opposite is true when the relative humidity decreases because the rate of perspiration increases.  The body actually feels cooler in arid conditions.  There is direct relationship between the air temperature and relative humidity and the heat index, meaning as the air temperature and relative humidity increase (decrease), the heat index increases (decreases).
