La llegada de un frente frío el martes dejará las temperaturas más frías de la temporada en el DMV, según el meteorólogo Joseph Martínez.

La sensación térmica se mantendrá en los 20 grados el martes, mientras que el miércoles en la mañana oscilará entre los 15 y 20 grados.

Martínez advirtió que las ráfagas de viento podrían alcanzar las 30 millas por hora de modo que exhortó a los residentes a abrigarse.

“Es momento de sacar los guantes, bufandas, abrigos, gorros y orejeras”, enumeró.

Sin embargo, el experto aclaró que no se espera nieve para la región en los próximos 10 días.

De hecho, la alcaldesa de DC, Muriel Bowser, anunció que una alerta por hipotermia entrará en vigor a partir del lunes a las 7 p.m.

RIESGO DE HIPOTERMIA

Según los Centros para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC, en inglés), “la hipotermia es causada por exposiciones prolongadas a temperaturas muy frías” lo que afecta el cerebro y ocasiona falta de movilidad.

Los síntomas son:

  • Tiritar
  • Sentirse agotado o muy cansado
  • Confusión
  • Torpeza con las manos
  • Pérdida de la memoria
  • Habla arrastrada o enredada
  • Somnolencia

Por tal razón, las autoridades recomiendan utilizar ropa apropiada, cubrirse la cara y la boca y utilizar botas que sean resistentes al agua.

También se exhorta a cubrirse la nariz, las orejas, los pies, las mejillas, la barbilla y los dedos al momento de salir.
