Extreme cold warnings issued for SW Manitoba


Warnings

4:29 AM CST Friday 15 February 2019 Extreme Cold Warning in effect for Areas in red


A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

Light winds combined with bitterly cold temperatures under a ridge of high pressure will give wind chill values near -40 this morning. Wind chill values will moderate this afternoon as temperatures climb.

Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.

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.
