The feels like temperature in the weather forecast is what the temperature feels like to our skin.

The feels like Temperature also takes into account the humidity and wind speeds to determine what the temperature will feel like to the human body since humidity and wind speed can affect how cold or warm we feel.

In the summer when the humidity is high our bodies will feel much hotter than it is outside and in the cold when the wind is blowing the temperature outside will feel much colder due to the wind blowing onto our face and bodies.
