Extreme Cold Warning Continues

4:47 AM EST Saturday 19 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 of minus 40 to minus 45 are occurring over much of Northern Ontario this morning.

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.
