Chill Factor?

Today is a public holiday for Australia Day and it is another warm day in Sydney. But Fedora Linux says because of the slight breeze, there is a Chill Factor of minus three degrees, so 27 degrees feels like 30 degrees Celsius. We know that any breeze during the Winter makes it appear colder, but in the Summer it should do the same (evaporation from the skin and all that).

Chill Factor

Very strange. Please explain.

I think the effect may be due to the 90+ % humidity in the air. Any movement makes you feel hotter 🙂

Maybe the Fedora Weather Drop-down should include the humidity…
