Environment Canada has issued several Extreme Cold Weather Warnings for parts of Saskatchewan.
The weather office says temperatures in the minus 30’s are combining with light northwesterly winds to give extreme wind chill values in the minus 40’s.
Areas like Estevan, Weyburn and Carlyle are affected.
These wind chills are expected to moderate through the morning but will once again drop back into the minus 40’s Friday evening and overnight as cold arctic air remains entrenched over the region.
Residents throughout the province are advised to wear proper clothing and cover exposed skin, as it could freeze in a very short period of time.
Environment Canada has cautioned this cold weather snap will remain in the province for several more days.
