Be afraid, be very afraid of 'giant Arctic mass'

  • Print

It’s never a good sign when the terms ‘extreme’ and ‘wind chill’ are paired together.

But that’s exactly what Winnipeg and most of southern Manitoba is faced with today, as the giant Arctic mass that’s made headlines across North America continues its cold grip on our province. Environment Canada issued an extreme wind chill warning this morning, with wind chills in the -40 to the -45 range.

Take precautions when heading out, folks: frostbite on exposed skin may occur in less than 10 minutes.

As for Wednesday’s forecast, look for sunny skies and a high of -21 C; wind chill values should hover in the -35 to -40 range. Tonight’s low is -26 C.

Look for mainly cloudy skies and a high of -20 C for Thursday before it gets bitterly cold again to start the weekend. Environment Canada has forecast a high of only -25 C for Friday.
