It's bright, sunny and in Winnipeg this morning that can only mean one thing; it's still dangerous out there.

Environment Canada is holding the button on the wind chill warning across southern Manitoba, a province that's seen little else this winter.

The forecast is still calling for a break and seasonal temperatures later this week.

In the meantime, winds at speeds of 15 to 20 kilometres an hour and temperatures in the mid minus 20s are making for wind chills of -40 to -45.

Exposed skin freezes in five minutes at those temperatures.
