My question is: What is the difference between Apparent and Feels like?
MX has been coded so that
- above 20 o
Celsius --> Feels Like reports same value as apparent temperature
- below 10 o
Celsius --> Feels Like reports same value as Wind Chill
Between the two Feels Like is a blend of apparent temperature and wind chill, the blend that is apparent temperature reduces the further below 20, and the wind chill blend increases the closer you get to 10.
Here was the PHP code for the 3 derivatives I mention, if that helps you, or anyone else reading this post. Please note I have selected to use Celsius and MPH for my function inputs to suit me, the function could be rewritten for other units.
EDIT: The code has been removed, because although it was right for version 3.6.0, in version 3.6.10 the formulas were all changed, making the code I had quoted here obsolete.
Although I don't use Norwegian, prior to MX adding Feels Like, I was using the terminology of Feels Like for a mixture where either Heat Index or Apparent Temperature or Wind Chill was displayed depending on which disagreed with the standard temperature. See the Wiki article on Feels Like for more details.
