Weekend Weather Shock

closeup of frozen hands covered in snow holding a cup, frostbite

Much of the country, and particularly the upper Midwest, is in for a blast of Arctic air this weekend. With the forecast calling for subzero temperatures for highs in some areas, it could be a dangerous few days if you're needing to be outdoors.

Frostbite is an injury caused by freezing of the skin and underlying tissues. First your skin becomes very cold and red, then numb, hard and pale. Frostbite is most common on the fingers, toes, nose, ears, cheeks and chin. Exposed skin in cold, windy weather is most vulnerable to frostbite. But frostbite can occur on skin covered by gloves or other clothing.

Signs and symptoms of frostbite include:

  • At first, cold skin and a prickling feeling
  • Numbness
  • Red, white, bluish-white or grayish-yellow skin
  • Hard or waxy-looking skin
  • Clumsiness due to joint and muscle stiffness
  • Blistering after rewarming, in severe cases
