Extreme cold warning extended to most of Saskatchewan

Record cold, biting winds grip region

Record cold, biting winds grip region

This arctic air mass will remain entrenched over the region through much of the week, resulting in a prolonged cold spell.

Extreme cold winds chills of minus 40 to minus 50 will continue this morning before cloud cover develops later this morning, helping to moderate temperatures into this afternoon.

Cold wind chills are expected during the mornings in the Myrtle Beach area, with low temperatures reaching the mid 20s, the NWS reports. We will see mostly cloudy skies and flurries with those winds WSW 10-25 miles per hour gusting even stronger and if you are not covered and layered up, you could become a victim of frost bite within minutes of being outside.

If you must be outside, dress warmly in layers, with a wind resistant outer layer.

The risky wind chills are expected to redevelop overnight Tuesday followed by a gradual improvement Wednesday.

More snow is expected Wednesday (with a high of -18) before party sunny skies return on Thursday. Total snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm are possible. This snow is associated with an Alberta Clipper that will cross the area.

Environment Canada has issued an extreme cold warning for a large section of the province, stretching from Wollaston Lake in the north down to the US border.

The agency said people should continue to monitor alerts and forecasts it issues.
