Heat Index and Wind Chill

  • First of all congratulatios for your spectacular job

    Guys, do you ever consider to add the following parameters to your awesome work?

    -Heat index based on:
    Relative humidity-air temperature
    Dew Point Temperature-air temperature

    -Wind Chill
    Wind speed-air temperature

    thanks and thanks

  • Hi @yopo , thanks for your message, we're really happy that you like Windy!

    As to your suggestions - we do have "Humidity" and "Dew point" as individual layers but not a combination of these two + air temperature as a "Heat index" layer, the same with "Windchill" (wind speed + air temperature). It's not our priority at this moment, but we will certainly think about it! All the best ~ Marie

    Just to make sure that I am getting it right:

    Heat index = a quantity expressing the discomfort felt as a result of the combined effects of the temperature and humidity of the air.

    Windchill = a quantity expressing the effective lowering of the air temperature caused by the wind, especially as affecting the rate of heat loss from an object or human body or as perceived by an exposed person.

  • @Marienka Hi guys, just wondering where the Windchill request is on your to-do list? Being winter now in Canada, it certainly would be a welcomed addition to your phenomenal app!
    All the best,

  • Agreed, especially when MN is going to get slammed this week with record-breaking wind chills. I can get it from pivotal weather directly, but it would be nice to get it all in one spot.
