The first time I saw "Real Feel" or "Feels Like" on the weather app, I thought that number was calculated by someone going out of their home every hour or so and reporting what it feels like outside. I thought this would be a perfect job for someone who spends a lot of time at home...

    @JoshBent its a formular for the felt temperature according to actual temperaturs + wind.

    @romangraef found one website telling it:

    "We calculate a 'feels like temperature by taking into account the expected air temperature, relative humidity and the strength of the wind at around 5 feet (the typical height of an human face) combined with our understanding of how heat is lost from the human body during cold and windy days"


    Interesting, never thought much into it until now.
