What to remember
The basics of protecting yourself properly from the cold:
The level of activity has an impact on how cold the weather feels due to body’s thermoregulation:
standing still means that cold feels even colder
moving means that muscles are working and releasing energy (heat) so it feels warmer and keeps you brisk!
Cover your head and your hands in all subzero weather conditions
Make sure you are wearing enough layers underneath your outer garments
Especially in windy conditions close your outer garments properly in order to prevent frostbites
Remember also that:
Wind and humidity make subzero temperatures feel considerably colder!
See how humidity and wind affect the heat regulation and the feeling of cold, and how it appears on your outfit
Can you find the differences on vertical and horizontal lines?
The wind makes the air cooler on the skin than the thermometer shows, whereas moisture evaporates heat from the body, thus cooling the body temperature
When the temperature drops below minus twenty, you have to protect yourself properly, no matter whether it is snowing, windy or not!
Remember layered clothing in any case!
