In addition to the significant snowfall, dangerously low temperatures combined with brisk winds are a formula for life-threatening conditions. The National Weather Service provides the following chart for measuring how quickly a person can receive frostbite based on the temperature and wind. Monday night’s low in Lansing was -12. Wind speeds are varying between 20 and 25 miles per hour, and the wind chill was -32 degrees. Based on those figures, according to the chart, frostbite would begin to set in within 30 minutes of being outdoors.
