A multi-day episode of very cold wind chills continues. The coldest wind chill values will be between minus 40 and minus 45.
Most of Alberta will see extreme wind chills return by Saturday morning. Southern Alberta will then warm slightly on Saturday afternoon bringing an end to the extreme cold for most areas. However in Northern and Central regions the extreme cold should persist until Monday.
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.
