All of Sask. remains under an Extreme Cold Warning Thursday morning

All of Saskatchewan remains under an Extreme Cold Warning on Thursday.

In Regina and Moose Jaw wind chills are expected to approach -50 C before moderating slightly later in the day.

“Watch for cold related symptoms: shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness and colour change in fingers and toes.

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

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

If it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.

Watch for colour changes on fingers and toes, pain, numbness, a tingling sensation, or swelling. If present, move indoors and begin warming.”

Relief isn’t expected until Monday when seasonal daytime highs are in the forecast.
