UPDATE: All extreme cold warnings mentioned in this story have ended
Parts of Saskatchewan are seeing a brief respite from the extreme cold conditions in the province.
Officials say the relief won’t last long as cold air will return on Friday night as more arctic air spills into the province.
The extreme cold will then last through the weekend, Environment Canada said.
Frostbite can occur in less than 10 minutes at these values.
Anyone heading outside should dress warmly and in layers and ensure the outer layer is wind resistant.
People working outside should take regular breaks to warm up.
Cold-related symptoms include shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness and colour changes in fingers and toes.
Emergency supplies, such as extra blankets and jumper cables, should be kept in vehicles.
Environment Canada issues extreme cold warnings when there is an elevated risk to health such as frostbite or hypothermia.
