What does “AccuFeel” temperature mean?2020-02-16T20:53:45+00:00

The temperatures in our forecasts represent the “air temperature” forecast – that is, the temperature that a properly shielded thermometer would record. However, there are factors which can lead to a day “feeling” hotter or colder than this value alone might suggest. Thus, the “AccuFeel” temperature is designed to give an indication as to when these extra factors may combine to make the apparent temperature seem higher, or lower, than indicated.

Will you offer any other non-English translations?2020-02-16T20:54:00+00:00

Probably not. We do a lot of text manipulation for our forecast data, and it’s not really feasible for us to do translations right now.
