Winter weather ready: Frostbite
Frostbite is a major concern as dangerously cold temperatures hit the tri-state area.
News 12 Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Addison Green says early warning signs of frostbite are your fingers and the tip of your nose feeling numb.
He says that means that part of your body could be getting too cold and not getting good enough blood flow.
Green says there is a difference between some of the early signs of frostbite and when hospitalization would be required.
Sometimes, people just need to warm back up by going inside until the symptoms resolve.
But Green says if you notice that your skin stays white, you can't feel it and then the pain gets severe, it's time to seek care.
There is still potential for snow, slush and ice this season.
