Noel wind chill is only applicable if you are generating heat, like your body. A temp sensor is a lump of metal and will naturally be at ambient temperature. You can blow on it as hard as you like and it won't get any colder. If you drive 'really' fast though it may get warmer through air friction <s>.

It will have thermal inertia though which is dependent on it's mass.
