What is your weather now?
What is your weather now?


9°C Breezy and raining.
The start and end to every story is the same. But what comes in between you have yourself to blame.

Well, to us, windchill is an indication that, even though it might only be X temperature, it's freezing out there on your face, which is always exposed to the weather. It also can be so cold in the windchill that frostbite is an issue but not very often. It's rare for it to go below -10 here for any length of time.

There's also the difference between "it's 0° C and there's no wind, so I can walk around outside with a thick sweater" (extremely unlikely), and "it's 0°, the wind's blowing at 6 Bft, so I'd better put on a coat, scarf, etc."

That being said, I'm not sure how useful this "wind chill" value is for that, as opposed to knowing the wind force. We don't actually use such a thing.

...but collectively it's known as gladheid (slipperiness).
"Гололедица".
The Russian term.

Wind chill makes some sense in warmer temperatures, where people may be in various states of undress, but it is my argument it doesn't for temperatures below freezing when people are dressed for the occasion. Not many people walk through a blizzard in swimwear.

Odd, it's when it's warmer that I'd call it completely irrelevant. :P

But given that it's windy 90% of the time it's pretty irrelevant in winter too, of course. You'd be crazy not to take a scarf along just in case.

It was supposed to be a slight DEfreezing, however, as the sun eventually decided to take a rest, and there was a wind, it felt like even colder today...

Sunny, mid-twenties.
Until May it will be like this, as long as we stay out of the wind.

The sun seemingly has got fed up looking at Pootin - and moved on looking at Cameron.
Still winter here, though...

Cold but dry, even seen the sun for 5 minutes.

Just below freezing? That's cool. Just above freezing, less so.

Ah, right, you're from the "downunder" too? Do you have winter there occasionally?:)

10° C and raining moderately hard. I'd like to let some fresh air in, but alas...

13° F this morning, more snow on the way. Yes, that's just outside my back door.

You're up quite early for a retired person, it seems to me. Was it even light yet? :)
