Quick Reference – Wind Chill Frostbite Chart

There’s a reason why you should pay attention to wind chill: because being cold in a windy environment spells BAD news for survival. Of course, being wet and cold is even worse! That said, this Wind Chill Frostbite Chart is an interesting one because it attempts to estimate how long it takes for a human to develop frostbite given wind speed and exposure time. Regardless, exposure to wind when cold should always be avoided, but this chart can help you get an idea of how quickly frostbite can set in.
