All of Saskatchewan now under extreme cold warning

December 28, 2017 10:16 am

Environment Canada’s extreme cold warning is now in effect for the entire province of Saskatchewan

Southern Saskatchewan is expected to experience wind chills into the -30 C range to persist throughout the morning, and in many locations, the wind chills should reach -40 C.

Environment Canada expects the wind chills to moderate in the morning as temperatures slightly recover.

But the reprieve won’t last for long. Friday’s forecast has temperatures reaching the mid -20s or -30s, which will lead to “persistent” severe wind chills of -40 to -45 throughout the southern half of the province.

The low point in Moosomin will be Friday overnight, according to the Weather Network. The overnight low Friday is forecast at minus 36, before any wind chill.

Severe wind chills are expected to remain throughout the weekend.

Please be very cautious if out on the highways during the extreme cold snap.
