I had to post this as it has been bugging me for the past few months, Our local weather has been mild now for almost two years but the weather sites
on the internet keep claiming doom and gloom.
To us here it seems like they are almost or maybe are paid to do this.
I was out in my tee shirt and a light jacket (spring coat) shoveling slushy snow, but yet they are claiming a wind chill factor as low as -16 C
Sunday Partly cloudy in the morning, then overcast with a chance of snow and rain showers. High of 2C with a windchill as low as -16C. Breezy.
Winds from the SSE at 10 to 25 km/h. Chance of snow 40%.
Here is the site with all of our current weather forecasts and let me tell you they are calling for windchill factors way beyond what is even
I actually had a hat on and threw it onto my truck as I was sweating heavily during my outing in -16 C winds .......
All last week same thing freezing cold winds, even when we got that so-called blizzard the temps were very mild to the point my snow blower was
jamming up due to the wet melting snow.
If you check out the local link I provided I can guarantee you that there will be negative wind chill factor for all of this week but they will
continue to put that crap on their web site.
Day in and day out they forecast extreme windchill factors and it never happens and never has all of this winter.
Ahhh summer is almost here with humid ex readings sure to be in the stratosphere
Any thoughts or comparisons?
