Right - "wind chill" only applies to liquid water, and only when relative humidity is below 100%. Relative humidity doesn't apply to air below 32F because there is no humidity in that air. But as that air strikes a warm object/body, the air warms. If it comes above 32 its relative humidity is 0% at that instant, causing extreme wind chill ONLY to wet/damp/humid surfaces. Yes, wind will cool dry surfaces faster than stagnant air does, but that's not what "wind chill" means. Only keyboard physicists/meteorologists confuse that term.
