Extreme Cold To Last Several Days


There is some good news if you’re not a fan of bitter cold conditions. Temperatures are expected to stay well below normal for at least a few days, but a warming trend will develop next week bringing our temps back to where they should be. In the meantime, we will have to deal with extremely dangerous cold.

Extreme Cold Warning in effect for:

Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
A period of very cold wind chills continues.

Wind chills will be in the minus 30 to minus 35 range today but drop to minus 40 to minus 45 tonight and Friday morning. These extreme wind chill values are expected again Friday night and Saturday morning.

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

Keep dry to stay warmer.

Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.
