Hi, I'm Ricky with your Newsround

update for this morning.

0:00:050:00:08

Coming up...

0:00:080:00:10

Who are you dressing up as?

0:00:100:00:11

Some top authors tell

us their World Book Day ideas.

0:00:110:00:16

Hi, everyone, Tom Fletcher here.

0:00:160:00:17

Hope you're having

a great World Book Day.

0:00:170:00:25

But first, the big freeze continues

with many of you waking up

0:00:300:00:34

to more snow this morning.

0:00:340:00:36

Scotland has seen the worst of it.

0:00:360:00:39

The most severe weather warning

is still in place there.

0:00:390:00:42

Travel has been disrupted for many -

we're hearing that some people have

0:00:420:00:46

been stuck on the roads all night.

0:00:460:00:50

But lots of you are

enjoying the weather.

0:00:500:00:52

Teachers and students at a school

in Essex had a snowball

0:00:520:00:55

fight on a epic scale -

take a look at this.

0:00:550:00:58

DRAMATIC MUSIC

0:00:580:01:06

Go!

0:01:070:01:08

LAUGHTER

0:01:080:01:16

DRAMATIC MUSIC

0:01:210:01:29

The headteacher at that school is

called Mr Snow, I kid you not!

0:01:400:01:46

It's not just the snow that makes

you feel cold on days like today -

0:01:460:01:49

there's also something called

the wind chill factor.

0:01:490:01:51

Sounds interesting.

0:01:510:01:53

So what is it?

0:01:530:01:53

It is absolutely freezing

at the moment but did you know

0:01:530:01:56

that the temperature we feel

is different to the actual

0:01:560:01:58

temperature of the air around us?

0:01:580:02:01

Now, outside the studios

here at newsround it says it's

0:02:010:02:03

around -1 degree but it also

says it feels like -7.

0:02:030:02:07

Now, that's because of something

called the wind-chill factor.

0:02:070:02:15

Weather experts often call

wind-chill of the feels

0:02:150:02:17

like temperature.

0:02:170:02:19

It's worked out using the air

temperature, humidity,

0:02:190:02:20

that's how much water vapour

is in the air, and wind speeds.

0:02:200:02:23

All this information is combined

into the science of how heat is lost

0:02:230:02:29

from the human body.

0:02:290:02:31

So, on a cold, windy day like today,

why does it feel even

0:02:310:02:34

colder than it really is?

0:02:340:02:38

On a calm day, our

bodies insulate us.

0:02:380:02:44

we give off heat so we warm

the air around us.

0:02:440:02:47

It's a bit like having a warm force

field or blanket.Bbut

0:02:470:02:52

But when it's cold and windy,

the wind hits the face and called

0:02:520:02:56

the skin to almost the same

temperature as the air.

0:02:560:02:59

It essentially blows the blanket

away so we feel much colder.

0:02:590:03:02

So, there you have it, wind-chill.

0:03:020:03:03

Pretty cool, eh?

0:03:030:03:05

It's so windy!

0:03:050:03:07

Help!

0:03:070:03:11

Next - happy World Book Day!

0:03:110:03:12

Lots of you are dressing up today.

0:03:120:03:14

But which characters

would famous authors like to be?

0:03:140:03:16

They've been telling us.

0:03:160:03:24

If I had to dress up

for World Book Day, I have one hero,

0:03:250:03:29

a writer and an actor,

William Shakespeare.

0:03:290:03:30

I think he's absolutely brilliant

and I would love to wear those big

0:03:300:03:33

baggy trousers and tights.

0:03:330:03:36

For World Book Day, I'm

dressing up as Harry Potter

0:03:360:03:38

with his invisibility cloak.

0:03:380:03:39

It's the easiest costume.

0:03:390:03:41

It looks like this.

0:03:410:03:46

I dressed up as the amazing late,

great Louise Rennison's Georgia

0:03:460:03:50

from Angus, Thongs And Perfect

Snogging.

0:03:500:03:54

So I dressed up as a huge

stuffed olive and I walked

0:03:540:03:57

up and down my street.

0:03:570:03:58

One of my favourite characters

is Ratty from Wind In The Willows

0:03:580:04:02

because I love the fact he's always

in his little rowing boat,

0:04:020:04:06

so I'd quite like to be in a little

rowing boatdressed as Ratty

0:04:060:04:09

and reading a book

on World Book Day.

0:04:090:04:17

I think I'd probably dressed up

as Matilda simply because,

0:04:170:04:20

as far as I can remember,

she always had an armful of books

0:04:200:04:23

and I think that's the best way

to go out into the world,

0:04:230:04:26

so I'd probably pick her.

0:04:260:04:27

I think it would probably be

Batman because Batman

0:04:270:04:30

was my all-time hero and probably

is still my all-time hero.

0:04:300:04:36

If I could dress up as anyone -

is it supposed to be

0:04:360:04:39

someone from a book?

0:04:390:04:40

I think so, yes.

0:04:400:04:41

Someone must have written a book

about Elizabeth Taylor.

0:04:410:04:43

I could dress up as Elizabeth

Taylor, couldn't I?

0:04:430:04:49

We can't --

0:04:490:04:53

We can't wait to find out who you're

dressing up as today.

0:04:530:04:55

know and send us a snap!
