Definition of temperature–humidity index in English:
A quantity expressing the discomfort felt as a result of the combined effects of the temperature and humidity of the air.
- Always interested in the weather, I became intrigued about comfort indexes when I first read about the Temperature-Humidity Index (THI) developed for the US Weather Bureau.
- From these data, the temperature-humidity index (THI) was calculated.
- Although the thermometer may read 75 degrees Fahrenheit, the Temperature-Humidity Index makes it feel much hotter.
