Extreme cold warning in the forecast:

The coldest wind chill values will be near minus 40.

Under mainly clear skies, extreme cold wind chills are expected to redevelop again tonight for parts of central Alberta. These extreme values will moderate somewhat late Wednesday morning.

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.
