Wintertime Wind Fact

Why does wind make us come to sense cold?

As soon as the wind blows across your uncovered surface of our skin, it draws warmth away from our bodies.

As soon as the wind picks up velocity, it draws further heat away, so if your skin is exposed to the wind, one's body will cool a lot more quickly than it would have on a calm day.
