Wind chill - Wikipedia

Thewind chill index was first developed in 1945 by Antarctic explorers Siple and Passel. In 1967-68, human experiments in northern Siberia by researchers Adamenko and Khairullin actually measured the onset of frostbite on the tips of people's noses.The National Weather Service began widespread public dissemination ofthe wind chill factor in the late 1960s, and it steadily gained prominence during the severe winters of the 1970s and '80s.However, after several studies showed the wind chill values were unrealistically low, in 2001 the National Weather Service revised the formula. Wind chills that previously computed to the minus 80s and minus 90s now were in the minus 55 to minus 60 range.

Thunderstorms likely in the morning. Then the chance of scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon. High around 70F. Winds S at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of rain 80%.

The week ahead is expected to be wet and active, with the chance for thunderstorms, high winds, heavy rain and possible ice forecast through Friday.

The ban covers all of western and central Oklahoma, as well as some of Tulsa County's neighbors: Washington, Osage, Pawnee, Creek, and Okmulgee.

On this page you’ll find frequently asked questions (FAQs) about climate and weather together with links to weather and climate websites around the world.

From "above average" to "evapotranspiration" to "winter", these definitions of common climate and weather terms will help you find your way around climate and weather.

The cyclical warming of sea surface temperatures off the western coast of South America that can result in significant changes in climate in the tropical Pacific Ocean and elsewhere around the earth. El Niño is strongly related to changes in pressure patterns and wind patterns around the tropical Pacific Ocean.

Wind-chill or windchill , (popularly wind chill factor ) is the lowering of body temperature due to the passing-flow of lower-temperature air.

Wind chill numbers are always lower than the air temperature for values where the formula is valid. When the apparent temperature is higher than the air temperature, the heat index is used instead.

A surface loses heat through conduction , convection , and radiation . [1] The rate of convection depends on both the difference in temperature between the surface and the fluid surrounding it and the velocity of that fluid with respect to the surface. As convection from a warm surface heats the air around it, an insulating boundary layer of warm air forms against the surface. Moving air disrupts this boundary layer, or epiclimate, allowing for cooler air to replace the warm air against the surface. The faster the wind speed, the more readily the surface cools.
