Extreme Cold Warning - Deja Vu All Over Again

Posted on Thursday, January 11, 2018 15:03 PM

After a brief respite, Extreme Cold Warnings are back for most of our area.

Wind chill values near minus 40 are expected tonight into Friday morning for Dryden, Vermilion Bay, Sioux Lookout, Red Lake, Ear Falls, Kenora and Fort Frances.

Environment Canada reminds us all to keep dry to stay warmer. Check on older family, friends and neighbours. Keep emergency supplies in your vehicle such as extra blankets and jumper cables. Remember - if it's too cold for you, it's too cold for your pets.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.
