The wind chill factor is the rate of heat loss from the skin as a result of the wind and cold.  For those math minded people the formula for this is: 

  • Wind chill (ºF) = 35.74 + 0.6215T – 35.75(V^0.16) + 0.4275T(V^0.16)
    • Where: T = Air Temperature (F)
    • V = Wind Speed (mph)
    • ^ = raised to a power (exponential)
