In extreme temperatures, The National Weather Service recommends:

Dress For The Cold:

Wear layers of loose-fitting and lightweight clothing. Trapped air between the layers will insulate you.

  • If doing strenuous outdoor activities, avoid wearing cotton.  Once wet, cotton takes a long time to dry And will sap your heat. Use synthetic fabrics that wick moisture from your skin and dry quickly.

  • Outer garments should be tightly woven, water repellent, and hooded.

  • Wear a hat, because 40% of your body heat can be lost from your head.

  • Cover your mouth to protect your lungs from extreme cold.

  • Mittens, snug at the wrist, are better than gloves.

  • Try to stay dry and out of the wind.

When Traveling:

Always prepare for the worst! 

  • Your vehicle's winter survival kit should include warm clothes, boots, blankets, a flashlight with extra batteries, candy bars, or cereal bars.  Here is a good list from ReadyWisconsin.

  • Always carry a charged cell phone and tell others about your travel plans.
