Temperatures dipping below -30C combined with winds of 10 to 20 km/h will result in wind chill values below -40 this morning. The remainder of southern Saskatchewan will see wind chill values of -35 to -40.  These extreme wind chill values will ease during the day, then redevelop over eastern Saskatchewan on Thursday night.

Extreme cold puts everyone at risk. Dress warmly. Dress in layers that you can remove if you get too warm. The outer layer should be wind resistant. Outdoor workers should take regularly scheduled breaks to warm up.
