Warnings

4:52 AM EST Saturday 13 February 2016
Extreme Cold Warning in effect for:

  • Lac-aux-Sables area
  • Louiseville area
  • Matawin - Mauricie National Park area
  • Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade area
  • Shawinigan area
  • Trois-Rivières area

Wind chill values will be between minus 38 and minus 46 this morning and overnight tonight.

Wear appropriate clothing.
- Always wear clothing appropriate for the weather. Synthetic and wool fabrics provide better insulation. Some synthetic fabrics are designed to keep perspiration away from your body which keep you dry and further reduce your risk.
- Dress in layers with a wind resistant outer layer. You can remove layers if you get too warm (before you start sweating) or add a layer if you get cold.
- Wear warm socks, gloves, a hat and scarf in cold weather. Be sure to cover your nose to protect it.
- If you get wet, change into dry clothing as soon as possible. You lose heat faster when you're wet.

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 tempsviolent.quebec@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #meteoqc.
