This chart officially went into use on Nov 1, 2001.

The New (now current) formula for Fahrenheit temperatures:
• Wind chill temperature = 35.74 + 0.6215T - 35.75V (**0.16) + 0.4275TV(**0.16)

In the formula, V is in the wind speed in statute miles per hour, and T is the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.
Note: In the formula, ** means the following term is an exponent (i.e. 10**(0.5) means 10 to the 0.5 power, or the square root of V), - means to subtract,+ means to add. A letter next to a number means to multiply that quantity represented by the letter by the number. The standard rules of algebra apply.
