It Feels Like…

Expanding on my previous entry “It’s Like a Heatwave” I thought I would explain what exactly Meteorologists and Forecasters mean when they say “It’s 99 degrees, but it feels like 104?”  Well, what we’re using is the lengthy 16-element equation below to calculate how hot it actually feels when considering other factors including the dew point.

I tried sprucing this formula up a bit by italicizing and changing the font color to fuchsia, AND bookending the equation with photos of Latino Super-HUNK and my mom’s favorite novela star, William Levy!!!

HI=16.923+((1.85212*10^-1)*T)+(5.37941*RH)-((1.00254*10^-1)*T*RH)
+((9.41695*10^-3)*T^2)+((7.28898*10^-3)*RH^2)+((3.45372*10^-4)*T^2*RH)
-((8.14971*10^-4)*T*RH^2)+((1.02102*10^-5)*T^2*RH^2)-((3.8646*10^-5)*T^3)
+((2.91583*10^-5)*RH^3)+((1.42721*10^-6)*T^3*RH)
+((1.97483*10^-7)*T*RH^3)-((2.18429*10^-8)*T^3*RH^2)
+((8.43296*10^-10)*T^2*RH^3)-((4.81975*10^-11)*T^3*RH^3)


It worked;)

Don’t worry we won’t make you do any of the math, just click here and enter the temperature and dew point, which you can find on wunderground.com for your “Feels Like” weather.

And now onto fashion…
