As our extreme cold warning continues into the weekend for Central Alberta, Environment Canada is now calling for hazardous frostbite conditions. 

Temperatures today, Friday January 12th, will stay steady at around minus 35. Wind chill values could be as low as minus 52 Friday morning and minus 47 this afternoon. 

Saturday could be even colder with a forecast high of minus 41 and a low of minus 47. This doesn't take into account any wind chill values.

Sunday warms up a bit with a forecast high of minus 37.

And Monday will give us a bit of a reprieve with temperatures forecast into the minus mid-teens.

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.

Watch for cold related symptoms: shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness and colour change in fingers and toes.

Dress warmly. Dress in layers that you can remove if you get too warm. The outer layer should be wind resistant.

Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.

If it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.
