You've probably heard by now that temperatures are about to dip into the 30s for daytime highs to end October and start November in the Duluth area. If you're like me, you probably briefly shivered at the thought, then went along with your day, knowing it has to happen sooner or later.

Being it's been a while since you've had to think about wind chills, here's a quick refresher on what that means.

While some people and weather apps call this the "feels like" temperature, the technical term is "wind chill".
