Common misconception. The concept of wind chill only applies to living things with skin. When air is moving, it sucks the heat off your body much faster than air that is still. This is what exactly what wind chill means. A wind moving at "X" mph, feels like still air at Y temperature.

It has ZERO effect on non-living objects such as thermometers. A temperature sensor will read the same whether it it is still or blowing 100mph.
