A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

A ridge of high pressure will produce clear skies and very cold temperatures across the Prairies during the next several days. Overnight temperatures are forecast to drop to -30 or colder, which combined with winds of 10 to 15 km/h will produce extreme wind chills of -40 or colder. While some moderation will take place during the day on Saturday, extreme wind chills will likely develop once again on Saturday night.

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.
