Felt air temperature (or apparent air temperature) is a quantitative measure in degrees Celsius that indicates the amount of heat the human body loses outdoors in a given time and place. It is an indication of the air temperature perceived by the body, which may differ from the actual temperature due to other climactic conditions affecting the exchange of heat between the body and the air.
