Does the wind chill factor apply the temperature range the oil weight range?

No, it doesn't. The wind chill factor is a number that estimates the effect of air flow over exposed skin (i.e. how the wind makes you feel even colder). You should use ambient temperature to figure out what temperature your engine is feeling.

The engine will "feel" different depending on wind speed (that's why cooling fans work on coolers). The cooling fins are more efficient in the wind (radiation heat may be the same, but convection is not). However, you should choose your oil for the worst conditions, which is standing still with no air-speed.
