A long period of extreme wind chill is expected as an Arctic air mass sets in over the eastern Prairies.

The extreme wind chill values will moderate slightly during the day, but will return overnight for the next few nights.

Extreme cold puts everyone at risk.

Watch for cold related symptoms: shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness and colour change in fingers and toes.

Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.

If it's too cold for you to stay outside, it's too cold for your pet to stay outside.
