How does Netweather calculate 'feels like' temperatures?

Hi Kelper, Netweather uses a pretty standard system - when temperatures are warmer, humidity is taken into account for the feels like, so it can typically 'feel' warmer than the actual temperature. We use humidex for this:

Then, once temperatures are cooler (below the teens, typically), wind chill comes into play, which can make it feel colder than the actual temperature.
