It's Not the Heat, It's the Humanity

Here's some interesting weather trivia: references in your favorite weather app or newscast to what the temperature outside feels like vs. what it actually is and references to the “heat index” are based on the late 1970s research articles by R. G. Steadman, an academic in the textiles and clothing department at Colorado State University. Just like “wind chill” values for cold weather, he established a scientific way to measure the “sultriness’” of the air, which is how warm/hot air appears to feel in the shade to a typical clothed human in various atmospheric conditions.
