Cold Enough for a Wind Chill Today

You need cold temps and a little bit of wind for a wind chill and we’ve got both, unfortunately.

Did you know that it needs to be below 50° for there to be a wind chill factor?

Well, it’s true and unfortunately, we’ll get a chance to factor in the wind chill with today’s forecast.

It’ll just barely eclipse the 50° mark today, so the wind chill won’t always be valid but for much of the day it will.

We’re looking at a relatively cold day and a stiff breeze will make it feel that much colder. How much colder? Here’s the National Weather Service’s official Wind Chill chart.
