WEATHER ALERT: Extreme Cold Warnings continue to dominate most of Saskatchewan Tuesday morning

Extreme Cold Warnings continue to dominate most of the province Tuesday morning, including Regina, Moose Jaw, Saskatoon and Prince Albert, along with surrounding areas.

Environment Canada says an Arctic ridge of high pressure continues to give frigid temperatures to portions of central and southern Saskatchewan and the southern half of Manitoba.

Temperatures in the minus 30’s along with winds of 10 to 15 km/h will produce extreme wind chills of minus 40 or colder Tuesday morning.

Some moderation will occur Tuesday afternoon, but some regions may experience extreme cold again Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Seasonal highs are expected to return for many on Thursday, the normal daytime high this time of year is about -10.3 C for Regina, and is now slowly trending upwards towards zero, meaning the
“dead of winter” has passed.
