This station reports what it "feels like" using Apparent Temperature instead of Wind Chill, Heat Index, and Humidex. This provides a more comprehensive and streamlined measure of how the weather feels, incorporating factors like temperature, humidity, and wind into a single, easy-to-understand value.

For traditionalists, it's safe to say that the Apparent Temperature essentially reflects the Wind Chill during colder months and aligns closely with the Humidex in warmer periods, offering a familiar reference point while incorporating modern meteorological understanding.
