An arctic airmass over the Central Interior is resulting in temperatures reaching as low as -30 degrees Celsius this morning. This combined with brisk northerly winds is giving extreme wind chill values below -40 degrees Celsius. Conditions are expected to improve this afternoon as temperatures rise.
Extreme cold puts everyone at risk.
Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.
