In brief: Always plan ahead
Cold temperatures are a main cause of raynaud's phenomenon, so cold weather can trigger symptoms.
If a person has only mild symptoms, he can keep his hands, feet, face, and ears warm with well-insulated clothing. The newest gadgets (such as heated gloves and heated socks) from winter sports stores may help. Using portable heaters, pre-warming the car, keeping dry, etc..., are helpful ideas.
