Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued an extreme cold warning for most of the province as an arctic air mass settles in, bringing frigid temperatures and biting winds.
Overnight lows near or below -30°C, coupled with winds of 15 to 30 km/h, will result in wind chill values plummeting to -50 to -40.
Residents are urged to cover up as frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin. Extreme cold warnings remain in effect, emphasizing the critical need for precautions to prevent frostbite and hypothermia-related health risks.
The warning extends into Monday morning.
