  • Manitoulin Island

Extreme cold conditions continue this morning.

Hazard:
Wind chill values near minus 40.

Timing:
This morning.

Discussion:
Wind chill values near minus 40 will continue this morning. Temperatures will moderate through the day bringing an end to the extreme cold spell.

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.

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

Check on older family, friends and neighbours.

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