A period of very cold wind chills is expected.
An Arctic ridge of high pressure continues to build southward across Saskatchewan today.
Temperatures in the minus thirties combined with winds up to 15 km/h are giving wind chill values of -40 or colder this morning across parts of central Saskatchewan.
Temperatures will moderate slightly during the day today but extreme cold will likely return overnight tonight across a larger portion of central and eastern Saskatchewan. It is likely that this extreme cold warning will be expanded this afternoon.
Extreme cold puts everyone at risk.
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.
Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.
