Environment Canada says turbulent weather may be over soon

Saskatchewan is currently experiencing an inverted temperature trend. This is when temperatures rise instead of falling at night, as they do normally.

We could also see some snow overnight. With those winds, we might also see some blowing powder on those highways.

Lang reminds everyone that if an extreme cold alert is issued, they should follow the appropriate steps to ensure their safety.

Extreme cold conditions are those where the wind chill or temperature values are below -40 Celsius. Frostbite can happen quickly. If you must go outside, make certain that your extremities are covered.

Layers are key to keeping warm in the cold.

Residents are paying attention to the windchill as temperatures change. Lang says that it is important to keep an eye on the windchill value before you head out.

Windchill is a measure how quickly heat is removed from your body. The temperature is not affected by the wind.

It is important to be prepared for cold weather. However, temperatures are expected to rise starting Jan. 27, with more seasonal values.

We are hopeful that we will enjoy milder weather, and it looks like this pattern will continue for a while.
