MOTORCYCLE DISTANCE RIDING WIND CHILL CALCULATOR
To use this wind chill calculator, simply fill in the fields for temperature (in degrees Fahrenheit)
and wind speed (in miles-per-hour), then click the Calculate button. Note the following:
This WCT index is only defined for temperatures at or below 50 degrees Fahrenheit and wind speeds above
Wind speeds of greater than 40 mph have little additional chilling affect. Also, very high wind speeds or temperature
extremes may produce erroneous calculations.
This WCT calculation assumes a clear night sky, i.e., no impact from solar radiation. Bright
sunshine can increase the wind chill temperature by 10 to 18 degrees Fahrenheit.
