DULUTH, MN. -- When it's this cold, going outside can be dangerous. Experts say frost bite and hypothermia can happen more quickly than you might realize.

It's going to be dangerously cold this week. So cold hypothermia and frostbite can start to develop in just 10 and 20 minutes.

With these cold temperatures, dressing warm should be the number one priority if you have to go outside this week. Experts say exposed skin is the biggest concern and layering up is crucial if you have to spend an extended amount if time outdoors.

"You got to have layers and if you are going to be outside all day, to start with a good base which is an important part of the get up. If you have a good base that is going to wick away sweat from your body and keep you warm that is going to make a lot of difference if you enjoy your time outside or not", said Scott Miller of Northwest Outlet.

Experts advise planning ahead if you do go outdoors, to take breaks from being in the brutal cold to warm up, and to get out of wet clothes as soon as you can.
