Topic - Can you answer this question?

themountaintamer - on 06 Oct 2012
So this is my question that I am seriously confused/ stuck on. I think I have the answer but not sure.


If the temperature at 194m above sea level is 8 C and you were at 995m on a very wet and windy day, with a wind speed of 10km per hour, what wind chill temperature would you expect? (Please show your calculations)

Expecting that it is wet therefore be cloudy my calculations would be as follows:
995 194 = 801
801 / 200 = 4.005
Knowing that on a cloudy day air temp. cools at -1 for every 200 metres.
-1 x 4.005 = - 4.005
8 - -4.005 = 3.995 C
Temperature at 995m = 3.995 C

What do you think, some clarification please.
