The Wind Chill Effect

Temps may range -1c to +2c widely today but it feels much colder because of the breeze.
Wind chill is determined by the air temperature and the strength of the wind. Today, much of the country experienced daytime highs of -1°C to +2°C. With wind gusts of 55 to 75kph being recorded widely across the country, the real-feel would be -8°C to -11°C making any it feel very raw indeed. Slackening winds will lead to a widespread frost overnight with temperatures dropping to between -2c and -6c widely.

The coldest wind chill ever recorded in the world was -124°C at Stantsiya Vostok, Antarctica on August 24, 2005.
