This week's weather is predicted to get down in the teens (Fahrenheit) . I'm from the gulf coast where it rarely gets under 40 F in winter.
I need tips, thank you!

Hat and gloves and layers (!). i generally wear a shirt and some kind of cardigan over it - then I wear a super long wool coat. I highly recommend one that goes down at least to your knees. If you're freezing you can also wear tights underneath your pants or skirt. Layers should keep you comfortable especially with the indoor-outdoor transition. I recommend breathable clothing, not stuff that makes you sweaty. Insulation is key.
Hats are vital. You lose a huge amount of body heat through your head.
Don't go cheap on the gloves. I like those therma-whatever lined ones. Mittens are best since your fingers are all in the same space. Oh and boots help too.
(I live in the northwest and dealt with five Boston winters.)
By the way, if you're not used to ice, I recommend yaktraks. And driving in the snow can be scary. Brake slowly and with looots of room and don't turn too fast or sharply!2
