Taking a look at your weather in niagara, the first of the cold winter weather hits us as we get back to school and work….
Monday morning temperatures across Ontario will feel closer to minus 20 with the windchill, with no big improvement into the afternoon according to The Weather Network.
During an extreme cold weather alert residents are urged to take the following precautions:
- Dress in layers, making sure your outer layer is windproof, and cover exposed skin.
- Wear a hat, warm mittens or gloves, and warm boots.
- Stay dry. Your risk of hypothermia is much greater if you are wet.
- Choose wool or synthetic fabrics for your clothes instead of cotton, because cotton stops keeping you warm once it gets wet.
- Seek shelter if you normally spend long periods outside. Depending on the wind chill, exposed skin can freeze in minutes.
- Avoid alcohol as it increases blood flow. You may feel warm even though you are losing body heat.
- Consider rescheduling outdoor activities, or limiting time outdoors, especially if it’s windy.
- Heat your home to at least 21ºC if babies or elderly people are present.
