Hot under the collar...

On my desk top I have two widgets, one that gives the temperature at the nearest weather station and a companion one that gives the 'apparent' temperature.

I can understand the apparent temperature being less that the actual temperature. Sort of the old wet bulb, dry bulb effect; wind chill factor and such like.

But how can the apparent temperature be more than the real temperature?

  1. It feels like that here today. I keep looking at the thermometer in disbelief. It insists that it is 61 F, but it feels like 68 F, and we're all running around in tshirts, no jackets. The sun feels very strong...
