West Winds Whip Wicked Wind Chill

I get hourly updates via the RSS feed from the National Weather Service in my Bloglines, and saw this a little after noon today:

A Few Clouds and 61 degrees F at Fitchburg Municipal Airport, MA

Winds are West at 8 MPH. The pressure is 30.10" (1019.5 mb) and the humidity is 60%. The wind chill is 60. Last Updated on Sep 13, 11:52 am EDT.

Do we really need to get a wind chill reading when it's 60? 60 seems like more "crisp." Perhaps even "cool," but definitely not "chill."

And at what point does the "wind chill" go away and the "heat index" appear?

Is the first wind chill reading of the year enough to lead channel 7 news tonight?
