Environment Canada's extreme cold warning is still in effect for St. Albert:

The coldest wind chill values will be near minus 40. A multi-day episode of very cold wind chills continues.

Under mainly clear skies, extreme cold wind chills will continue for parts of central and northern Alberta. These extreme values are expected to persist until at least this weekend.

Wind chills will generally improve during the afternoon periods before returning overnight and in the morning hours.

Extreme cold puts everyone at risk.

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

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

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ABstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ABStorm.
