Just one more day.

That's what Manitobans need to tell themselves as they face another brutally cold day.

Get through Tuesday — with its wind chill values that freeze bare skin in 10 minutes — and Wednesday will feel like spring break.

The high for Wednesday is expected to be about –12 C, which is near normal for this time of year (–11 C).

Temperatures will dip again after that but should hover somewhere between –16 C and –19 C.

Meanwhile, keeping bundled on Tuesday is a must as most of southern Manitoba is under an extreme wind chill warning.

Cold Arctic air with temperatures of 30 C are combining with winds to produce wind chills around 43.
