It’s the perfect weekend to get some things done around the house. A ridge of arctic pressure is moving through the province bringing cold temperatures and extreme wind chills.
An extreme cold warning began Friday night in central Sask. reaching down to the southeast corner of the province, it ended around 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
Environment Canada Meteorologist Robyn Dyck told 650 CKOM that the air mass will be around for a little while.
“It does look like the overnight lows could be into the low minus 20’s for the next week, so nothing changing that much,” she said.
The extreme cold warning was expected to be lifted by late Saturday morning according to Dyck.
Despite the major cool down it doesn’t look like we’re in record-breaking territory.
“It’s winter and this is the kind of thing we get,” Dyck said. “The normal this time of year is around minus 17.”
An extreme cold warning is issued when a period of very cold wind chills is expected.
