The frigid weather is expected to plunge to temperatures several degrees below zero.


It could take a mere 15 minutes in the elements to start feeling negative effects of cold weather, “especially for extremities,” Skenandore said. “At a minimum a hat, gloves, if you can do some kind of scarf or face covering that will protect your ears.”
