Environment Canada has just expanded their extreme cold warnings into southern Manitoba, central Saskatchewan and northern Ontario. Almost all of Manitoba is now under the warning. The warning reads below:

A prolonged period of very cold wind chills is expected. Bitterly cold wind chill values in the -40 to -45 range are expected tonight and Friday in much of southern Manitoba as frigid Arctic air cascades down from the north. The cold weather is expected to persist through the weekend. Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter. 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.
