At what temperature do you keep your home in the winter?
SPOKANE, Wash. -- When temperatures drop and winds pick up frostbite becomes a real possibility.
The Spokane area will be under a Wind Chill Watch this weekend. The cold weather with big wind chills can be more than just uncomfortable. It is dangerous.
Dr. Joe Cvancara is a Dermatological Surgeon in Spokane Valley. He has seen the first hand effects of frostbite setting in on patients who were outside for only five minutes in sub-zero temperatures.
Cvancara recommends covering exposed skin anytime temperatures drop below freezing.
