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.
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.
