The prospect of getting frostbite is thoroughly terrifying, conjuring images of blackened limbs and amputated digits. However, most of us just jokingly conflate it with being super duper cold, and the sort of ailment only people scaling Everest or living in Siberia might need to worry about. Yet, under the right not-so-exceptional conditions, it can set in rather quickly, and do irreversible damage to your skin (or worse) without you even realizing it.
Fortunately, an intrepid data visualization enthusiast assembled a handy interactive table that can tell you exactly how long it'll take for frost bite to set it, depending on the current temperature and wind speed, so you know when you're at risk. Check out the chart, which was created by Adam Crahen using National Weather Service data and posted to tableau.com, in full below.
