How much does wind effect air temperature?

    Chill temperature is the actual temperature it is, plus how hard the winds blowing. Its just how it feels on the human body, not the actual temperature on a thermometer outside, for example.

    Well, as far as the actual air temperature, wind has no effect on it… but the wind chill (the apparent temperature, or how warm or cold it feels outside) does change depending on the speed of the wind. Wind is caused by the relative heating of regions of Earth’s atmosphere that receive direct sunlight. As it gets hotter, air becomes less dense, and this air then floats (or rises) above the colder air below it. There are patterns of convection and swirling of hot and cold air masses in our atmosphere: So wind is not really something that causes a change in air temperature — it’s actually the other way around.
