According to NOAA, hypothermia is "a rapid, progressive mental and physical collapse that accompanies the lowering of body temperature." Hypothermia can occur in temperatures as warm as 60 degrees F, particularly in water or if you are outside a long time and not dressed for the weather. Some ways to avoid hypothermia are to dress in layers, wrap up well when going outside in the cold, and avoid breezes and drafts indoors.
