Warnings

4:25 AM CST Monday 28 January 2019 Extreme Cold Warning in effect for:

  • All of Manitoba

  • All of northern Ontario

  • Eastern Saskatchewan

A period of very cold wind chills is expected. A cold front moving through Manitoba today will bring a frigid Arctic airmass into southern Manitoba this evening. Widespread extreme wind chill values of -40 to -50 are expected to begin late this evening and last through Thursday afternoon. Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.

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.
