WIND CHILL ADVISORY Exposure to extreme cold makes you susceptible to frostbite in a matter of minutes. Areas most prone to frostbite are uncovered skin and the extremities, such as face, hands and feet. Follow these Cold Weather Safety Tips:  1) Wear layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing. Trapped air between the layers will insulate you.  2) Outer garments should be tightly woven, water repellent and hooded.  3) WEAR A HAT ...40% of your body heat can be lost from your head.  5) Cover your mouth to protect your lungs from extreme cold.  6) Wear Mittens...they are better than gloves.  7) Try to stay dry and out of the wind.
