Extreme cold warning issued for Saskatoon
A cold snap is on its way.
Environment Canada has issued an extreme cold warning for Saskatoon.
An arctic high-pressure ridge brought temperatures down to near -30 C overnight, which combined with winds to produce wind chills of -40 C or colder.
Saskatoon’s temperature is currently at -44 C this morning with the windchill. These conditions are expected to let up over Wednesday morning.
According to Environment Canada, a fast-moving system will bring milder air into the area on Wednesday afternoon and evening, but it will be accompanied by light snow and blowing snow.
More extreme cold is expected on Thursday morning.
Environment Canada issues cold warnings when temperatures or wind chill get low enough to create a heightened risk of frost bite and hypothermia.
