Environment Canada has expanded Extreme Cold Warnings to include the city of Regina.
In fact, there are all sorts of weather warnings proactically right across Canada. In Saskatchewan a, bitterly cold airmass has now spread completely through the Prairies.
Wind chill values in southern Saskatchewan can be expected to dip to the -40 to -48 with the coldest wind chill values expected Friday morning.
Environment Canada urges residents to dress in layers, cover up and keep emergency supplies in your vehicle.
If it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.
Saskatoon, the Battlefords, Prince Albert, Yorkton, Estevan and Weyburn are also under the same warning.
Regina is not expected to see any relief until Tuesday or Wednesday.
And according to Brad Vrolijk with Environment Canada, a system moving in next week should make a big difference.
“It does look like there is going to be a pretty significant, large-scale pattern change in the middle of next week,” Vrolijk said. “And it looks like a more prolonged period of much warmer temperatures will be moving in.”
