Extreme Cold Warning
Extremely cold wind chill values of minus 40 to minus 50 will moderate as temperatures rise today.
Most areas will see warmer temperatures tonight. However, in east-central parts of Alberta, one more night of extreme cold is expected before warmer temperatures move in for the weekend.
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.
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.
