Almost all Manitoba under extreme cold warnings

Bundle up, Manitoba: almost all provinces are under extreme cold warnings.

The warning, effective immediately after 3:15 p.m., stretches from the northern end of the province to the U.S. border.

The only provincial part not included in the warning is the southeastern tip, including Whiteshell, Lac du Bonnet, Pinawa, Sprague and Northwest Angle Provincial Parks.

Environment Canada says, very cold Arctic air masses will remain above Manitoba over the next few days. Extreme wind chills are estimated to exceed –40 in most southern Manitoba and –45 in northern Manitoba.

Extreme cold warnings are issued by Environment Canada when extremely cold temperatures or cold winds make a high risk, such as frostbite and hypothermia.

Environment Canada said a warm approach approaching should bring Manitoba out of the freeze on Wednesday.
