Environment Canada forecasting white Christmas for B.C.

Environment Canada has issued an Extreme Cold Warning for Alberta, a warning that old man Winter is displaying his true colours.

Extremely cold windchill values are expected to persist into next week. The lowest wind chill value will be between minus 40-minus 50.

According to the government department in Alberta, areas of northern Alberta will experience prolonged periods with extreme cold conditions. This could continue into next weekend.

Environment Canada recommends covering all skin and avoiding outdoor activities, as frostbite can quickly develop on exposed skin.

As a reminder, if it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.
