How to Stay Warm in Extreme Cold Weather
DES MOINES, Iowa – The bitterly cold temperatures and wind chills central Iowa is experiencing are going to be dangerous for people staying outside too long. Frostbite and hypothermia become very real threats when temperatures drop this low. If you are planning on going outside Friday make sure you have multiple layers of light clothing. A base layer worn underneath other clothing should wick moisture away from your skin. Over that an insulating layer will help your body retain its own heat, and a breathable outer layer shell will protect you from the wind and external moisture.
