Wawa and area now included in Extreme Cold Warning

11:10 AM EST Friday 18 January 2019
Extreme Cold Warning in effect for:

  • Wawa – Pukaskwa Park
  • White River – Dubreuilville

A prolonged period of very cold wind chills is expected.

Wind chill values near minus 40 are expected tonight over much of Northern Ontario.

This bitterly cold Arctic airmass will remain in place 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.

Dress warmly. Dress in layers that you can remove if you get too warm. The outer layer should be wind resistant.

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.
