Environment Canada: Extreme cold warning in force

Environment Canada states that cold temperatures combined with brisk northwest winds will result in wind chill values of between near minus 30 and minus 30.

Extreme Cold Warning in force for:

  • Barrie – Collingwood – Hillsdale
  • Midland – Coldwater-Orr Lake
  • Orillia-Lagoon City-Wasago

Expect a prolonged period with very cold wind chills.

Wind chill values close to minus 30
Minimum temperatures near minus 20 degrees Celsius.

This morning, and again tonight into Friday morning.

Cold temperatures combined with the brisk northwest winds will result in wind chill values of between minus 30 and minus 30. Today’s wind chill values are expected to be moderated, but may drop to minus 30 tonight or Friday morning.

Extreme cold puts everyone at high risk

The risks are higher for children and older adults, people with chronic diseases, people who work outdoors, or those without proper shelter.

To stay warm, keep your hands dry

Cover up. Frostbite can occur in minutes on exposed skin, especially when there is wind chill.

If it’s too cold to go outside, it’s too frigid for your pet.

You should be looking out for changes in colour on fingers and toes as well as pain, numbness, or swelling. If you feel the need to warm up, go indoors.
