Windchill Temperature = 0.045*(5.2735*SQROOT(W) + 10.45 - 0.2778*W)*(T - 33.0)+33

WCF = 1.1626*(5.2735*SQROOT(W) + 10.45 - 0.2778*W)*(33.0 - T)

where:

ET = equivalent temperature (degrees Celsius)

WCF = wind chill factor (Watts per square metre)

SQROOT = square root function

W = wind speed (Km/hr)

T = air temperature (degrees Celsius)
