Cold Weather Gear
Wear a hat, scarf, mittens, water resistant coat and boots.
Wear several loose fitting layers that hold body heat and don’t absorb moisture.
Do not ignore shivering. It’s an important first sign that the body is losing heat. Persistent shivering is a signal to return indoors.
Lightning can strike the same place twice. During a thunderstorm, immediately seek shelter in a building or car.
Drink plenty of water and limit sun exposure during a hot day. Heat stroke can happen quickly.
Seek shelter or evacuate. A weather event is occurring or indicated by weather radar.
Conditions are minimal, but keep an eye on any changes.
Stay alert. Conditions are favorable for a weather event.
