(WDAY TV) - Well folks, winter has arrived, at least for now. Health officials are encouraging everybody to take precaution and dress for the weather.

If you do have to spend time outside, keep your extremities covered and stay moving. Sanford doctor Robert Martino says the wind can be much more damaging than the actual temperatures.

DR. ROBERT MARTINO - Sanford Occupational Medicine: “When you start adding wind into these cold temperatures, you have the effects of convection on the skin in which you start to pull away a lot of the available heat.”
