Forecast today says it’ll be 18C at 1pm but “feels like” 10C. wat

Weather toot 

@daedalus someone once explained “feels like” as the temp when not in a covered place (so in hot times, regular temp is a shaded area, feels like is actually out under the sun; cold likely factors in wind/humidity/precip). I think it all boils down to “the temp was taken outside, but in a box that the elements can’t effect. Feels like actually factors in the real weather..”

Weather toot 

@gb yes I'm just boggling at the large difference in temp. I am assuming it's mostly wind chill, because it's hella wimdy lately.

Weather toot 

@daedalus yeah I remember my winters in Melbourne… the wet and the wind were brutal (I also didn’t have a car so I biked and rode the Met everywhere).

Weather toot 

@gb Yeah I've ridden to/from work in the wet and cold. It can be quite unpleasant.

Weather toot 

@daedalus also it’s 39° right now and for some reason that seems lower than recently. Apparently the “heat index” (read “feels like, but deadly”) is closer to 43°

Weather toot 

@gb Is that C or F?

Weather toot 

@daedalus C. 102° and heat index up to 109° F in Austin today

Weather toot 

@gb ah yes. I have experience a week of Austin in summer and no thank you please.

@daedalus Your government today will be Labor in 2022 but "feels like" Coalition circa 2003.

Weather toot 

@daedalus Yes I'm exactly the type of arsehole who will turn a conversation about the weather political.

Weather toot 

@adz well you’re not wrong.
