[ARCHIVED] Dangerous Cold Temperatures

Life-threatening cold and wind chills this weekend

Wind chills will be coldest Sunday and Monday mornings: at these levels, it can take just 10 minutes or less for frostbite to develop on exposed skin!

Wind Chill Safety Tips:

  • Minimize Exposure - Avoid exposure during the coldest wind chills.
  • Stay Dry - Wet clothing causes body heat to be lost faster. Wear waterproof insulated boots.
  • Stay Covered - Wear a hat and gloves! At least half your body heat is lost if your head is not covered.
  • Dress in Layers - Trapped air between layers helps to insulate.
