The humidex is important to look at since human comfort is affected by the combination of both humidity and temperature.
The models predict an increase in humidex values in the region.
Other indices of heat exposure are sometimes used in environmental health research, including the humidex (Environment Canada 2013) and the UTCI (2012).
Heat Advisory - humidex of 36 or more for a least two consecutive days
Heat Warning - humidex of 40 or more for at least two consecutive days

Second, many temperature indicators have been used to define exposure, including minimum, mean, maximum temperature, diurnal temperature range, apparent temperature, and Humidex.

Other studies have used apparent temperature, the humidex, and temporal synoptic index (Zanobetti and Schwartz 2008).
Results were adjusted for day of the week and humidex.
Mortality rates for all ages and for > 64 years age groups rose with increasing humidex and apparent temperature, with no significant increase for the population < 65 years.
