we used to get that every year and even wind chills much lower than that like -45 or so

Not in our area. Below zero weather was fairly rare even back then

Don, I want to find out what the lowest wind chills I've experienced in NY are....is there a way to go about doing this?

Basically covering the period from 1977 to 1994....I'm pretty sure we've not been as cold since then (unless you want to throw in 2004 too.)

 

For JFK: -28, January 21, 1985

Wow. Really?  I remember much worse in our area when i was growing up on the colder, windier nights. 

I think maybe that's with the new calculation, with the old calculation it could be anywhere from -45 to -60 lol

Is there a way to find out what it would be calculating it the old way?

Recorded being the key word.
Several mountains there see that routinely several times a year 

 

Sounds correct. Denali in winter, at 20,000 ft, gets the winds well over 100 mph, plus further north. The book "Minus 148" by Art Davidson describes the first winter ascent of Denali in 1967. Did they have accurate means of temp measurement ? -- doubtful. Was it colder than Mt Washington tonite ? Almost certainly. Art and 2 others had to stay in a snow cave they dug at 18000 ft for 3 days until 150 mph winds subsided.
