The Science of Wind Chill

“Wind chill” is a term used to describe what the air temperature feels like to the human skin due to the combination of cold temperatures and winds. It’s commonly referred to as the “feels like” temperature. It’s important to understand that bitterly cold wind chills can increase your risk of developing frostbite and hypothermia.
WHAT TO DO during wind chills:
🔹 Stay dry. Wet clothing can cause much faster heat loss. Wear insulated and waterproof boots when it’s snowy or rainy.
🔹 Stay covered and dress in layers. Layers of loose-fitting clothing help to insulate. Wear a hat and mittens.
🔹 Stay informed. Don’t forget to take wind into account when calculating just how bundled up you need to be.
