Extreme Cold Warnings have been issued by Environment Canada Saturday night.
“An arctic ridge of high pressure will build through the prairies this weekend. Bitterly cold temperatures are forecast Saturday for all of southern Saskatchewan.”
“Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.
If it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.”
Regina, Moose Jaw, Saskatoon, and Prince Albert are all under the warning, as are surrounding areas.
While conditions are expected to improve Sunday, temperatures are expected to remain below seasonal all week with daytime highs hovering around minus 16.
The normal daytime high for Regina on February 3 is about minus 9.
