Alberta remains under extreme cold warnings


Warnings

10:30 AM MST Monday 11 February 2019 Extreme Cold Warning in effect for areas in red.


Temperatures will continue to moderate this afternoon. Skies are forecast to clear tonight for many areas, especially over eastern and central regions, allowing temperatures to plummet. This will produce extreme wind chill values again for many regions by Tuesday morning.

Extreme wind chill values between minus 40 and minus 45 will continue over may parts of Alberta from the later evening hours into mornings throughout the week.

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. 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.


Above is the forecast issued by Environment Canada at 4pm (central time) for Winnipeg, MB. Manitoba and Saskatchewan have been getting a break in extreme cold temperatures.
