Can you get frostbite when the temperature is above freezing but the wind chill is below freezing?
Can you get frostbite when the temperature is above freezing but the wind chill is below freezing?
x
No.  In order to get frostbite, temperatures have to be cold enough to freeze the skin.  Wind chills below freezing are just the feels like temperature when combing the temperature and current wind speed, not what the temperature actually is.

Can it be too cold to snow?
Can it be too cold to snow?
x
No.  The temperature is just one ingredient in the formation of snow.  Air always has the capacity to hold some water vapor, although the amount of water vapor that is in the air decreases as the temperature drops.

How long does it take to get frostbite with a temperature of -5° and a 20 mph wind?
How long does it take to get frostbite with a temperature of -5° and a 20 mph wind?

About 30 minutes.  Frostbite is the irreparable damage done to frozen skin.  Signs of frostbite include; swelling, burning, stinging, the skin turning black and blue, and extreme pain.  If frostbite is suspected, go to a hospital immediately.

How cold does it have to be before boiling water turns into snow?
How cold does it have to be before boiling water turns into snow?

It varies, but around -20°.  The air needs to be very cold and dry, which means both the temperature and dew point have to be very low.

Can you get hypothermia with temperatures above 40°?
Can you get hypothermia with temperatures above 40°?
x
Yes.  Hypothermia (when the body temperature drops several degrees below normal) can occur with any temperature cooler than your body temperature, but obviously it can happen faster the colder it is.

All of the above.  Call for help and then stay with your car where you are out of the elements.  Run your car for few minutes every hour to keep it mild.  The only time you would want to get out of your car is to make sure your exhaust pipe stays clear of snow and debris.

If the wind chill is below freezing but the temperature is above freezing, will water freeze?
If the wind chill is below freezing but the temperature is above freezing, will water freeze?
x
No.  Wind chill is the temperature the body feels when combining temperature and wind speed.  This does not lower the actual air temperature; the wind just makes it feel like it’s colder to human beings.

Trick question… it depends.  Every school district is different, but all want to keep their students as safe as possible when traveling to and from class.  Many metro schools will begin to close their doors when wind chills hit or exceed -35°.

Is it quieter when it snows?
Is it quieter when it snows?
x
Yes.  The crystal structure that makes up snowflakes acts as insulation when it falls and accumulates soaking up sound.  There are many human and natural variables that can overpower this absorption like wind, traffic noise, etc.
