The question was raised as we were discussing the effects of wind chill as stated in message ID:931057677.En ... An Engineer friend of mine said that if the water and air were 33 degrees (F) and a wind was passing over the water, the energy required for evaporation would "supercool" (his term) the water and cause the top layer to freeze. This was in contrast to our understanding at the time, but has caused us to give it some serious thought (except for one who refuses to believe anything that isn't in print :-))
Re: Is it possible for wind, through evaporation, to lower the temp of water?
