Winter Weather Fatigue setting in across the region

Posted: Updated:

The snow, ice, and cold this year just won't go-away.

The harsh winter weather is causing Winter Weather Fatigue and is enough to give people the winter blues.

Experts say cold, gloomy days can actually influence our mood.

Psychologists say it is common to have reduced tolerance for every snow storm and, with a lowered tolerance, comes added stress and the ability to manage that stress becomes lower.

But experts say the difference between a bout of the winter blues and something more serious is the intensity of the symptoms.

At Sylene, a clothing store in Friendship Heights, the owner hears it from women all the time.

Buying a swimsuit means escaping the chill and many wish they were on a sunny tropical beach..

To many it feels like the coldest winter in a while.
