The extreme cold warnings in Saskatchewan have ended.

All of southern Saskatchewan and many central regions were under the warning due to high pressure ridge that brought in clear skies and very cold conditions.

Environment Canada officials said the cold temperatures combined with winds up to 20 km/h to create wind chill values below -40.

Exposed skin can freeze in less than 10 minutes at these values.

With windchills around -40, the risk of frostbite is within the 5-10 minute range. SkyTracker Weather

Wind chill values are expected to moderate later in the morning and during the afternoon.
