Is there a scale which combines heat index and wind chill other than the Australian apparent temperature as I feel that it underestimates the heat?

In Canada they use humidex and wind chill. You can see this on Canadian climate charts.

Humidex uses only temperature and humidity without wind speed.

Humidex does not make any sense. I abide by Heat İndex.

At lower temperature and higher relative humidity, wind gives cooling effect. At higher temperature and very low relative humidity, wind gives heating effect. So is there a scale which incorporates these effects into the heat index?. Example at temperature of 86F and 100% humidity, heat index will be 111.55F, but with 33 mph wind it will be 98.95F.

30C at 50% humidity is an heat index of 31C.

When I type the same numbers for humidex, the value is 36C. Humidex gives exaggerated values. I was just mentioning it.

Sun's existance take great role on how we feel as well. A dry 40C without sun does not feel really hot either.

At temperatures above 40C, wind feels odd. You take more notice about the temp with the wind. Sun and Humidity are the worst things when it is hot, though.

I want a scale which combines wind, heat and humidity in numbers not just hot and cold.
Note: At lower temperature and higher relative humidity, wind gives cooling effect. At higher temperature and very low relative humidity, wind gives heating effects. So I want a scale which combines heat, humidity and the cooling or heating effects of wind in numbers?
