One of the coldest winters in Manitoba history refuses to ease up.
Environment Canada on Tuesday issued weather warnings for the extreme north, west-central and southwest Manitoba as northwest winds and temperatures near –30 C are creating extreme wind chill values.
In the central and south regions, the wind chill makes the temperature on exposed skin feel more like –40. At those values, frostbite can occur in less than 10 minutes.
The extreme levels are expected to moderate by midday.
In the north, the wind chill feels more like –45 to –50.
That will improve to about –30 by midday but the extreme levels will return in the evening, according to Environment Canada.
