When the weather is humid, the heat index indicates the human-perceived equivalent temperature on the basis of air temperature and relative humidity (and other parameters) [Wikipedia]. The Humidex is a similar index by Environment Canada based on air temperature and dewpoint temperature. It is a dimensionless number. However, it indicates for humid air with which temperature dry air would feel similarly. Therefore, the values are given in degrees Celsius and degrees Fahrenheit.

Usage: Trockenheit Type the temperature and the relative humidity or the dew point temperature into the corresponding fields. After a mouse click on any free space of the window or the "calculate"-button the calculation is performed. Click on the "reset"-button to reset the calculation. Move the mouse over a unit or click on it to read its full name.

For a calculation the air temperature must be higher than 26.6°C (80°F). The valid range for relative humidity is 40 % to 100 %. The dew point temperature must not be higher than the air temperature.

Example: A temperature of 33°C and a relative humidity of 70 % have been measured. Type the values into the corresponding fields. After the next mouse click on any free space of the window or the "calculate"-button you can read the result: The heat index is 43°C and the humidex 47.4°C.
