Wind Chill Calculation Or Windchill Factor

Wind Chill is the lowering of body temperature due to the passing-flow of lower-temperature air.

The wind chill calculation is based on wind speed and outdoor temperature, as shown in the table below.

Wind Chill temperature is defined only for temperatures at or below 10 °C (50 °F) and wind speeds above 4.8 kilometres per hour (3.0 mph).

Thus, for consistency,  our weather stations and software display outdoor temperature when Wind Chill when invalid.
