There's definitely a HUGE difference between dry and wet state. Your life, when wet at say -20c, can be consumed in minutes.

Water freezes at ZERO celsius if it's cooling

So yes -10C will kill you after a while, you will get "cold" and after a while you will freeze to death

I used to wait for the bus in -20C air temp, the wind chill was way higher, but I'm still alive, but -10C will kill you after enough time
