Extreme cold warning issued

A period of very cold wind chills continues across northern B.C. Environment Canada has issued an extreme cold warning.

Arctic air will remain over the region for most of the week. Expect extreme cold wind chill values of near -40 to -45 degrees Celsius through Thursday.

Extreme cold puts everyone at risk. Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.

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

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
