Churchill stuck in icy grips of another extreme cold warning

If you have this holiday Monday off, you may just want to stay warm in bed. Most of northern and parts of central Manitoba are under extreme cold warnings thanks to an Arctic airmass and wind chills in the –40s and –50s.

If you have this holiday Monday off, you may just want to stay warm in bed.

Monday morning, most of northern and parts of central Manitoba were under extreme cold warnings. While those warnings ended late Monday morning, Churchill and York Factory are still under extreme cold warnings, with wind chill values near –50.

It's the third day in a row Churchill has been frozen in a state of wicked winter weather.

Winnipeg and the surrounding areas aren't under extreme cold warnings but are by no means warm either, hovering around –20 C with a wind chill of around –25. 

Environment Canada warns the conditions pose a serious risk of frostbite if skin is left exposed outdoors.
