A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

Extreme wind chill values near or below minus 40 are expected overnight and Thursday morning and again Thursday night and Friday morning.

Dress warmly. Dress in layers that you can remove if you get too warm. The outer layer should be wind resistant.

Keep dry to stay warmer.

Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.
