Wind chill a little on the conservative side

The wind chill figures in this forecast chart for 16 UTC seem to be rather on the conservative side at 16 UTC today in Alex Deakins afternoon video forecast. A number of sites are reporting wind chills as low as -9°C at that time, in fact Altnaharra is reporting an air temperature of -7°C and a wind chill of -8.7°C. I am not sure what algorithm the Met Office use for their wind chill calculations but I would expect it to be the same JAG one that I use.
