Alerts for: Acadian Peninsula

Warnings

3:39 PM AST Saturday 13 February 2016
Extreme Cold Warning in effect for:

  • Acadian Peninsula

A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

A cold dome of air centred over Quebec today will move into New Brunswick tonight. Wind chills of minus 35 can be expected.

Avoid alcohol.
- Consuming alcohol before you go out in the cold may increase your risk of hypothermia because it increases blood flow to the extremities of the body. You may actually feel warm even though you are losing heat.

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 weatherASPC@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #NBStorm.
