Weyburn residents are bundling up to head out this morning as an extreme cold warning is currently in effect. 

Wind chills this morning are making it feel below minus 40 and staying that way throughout most of the day. 

Overnight and into Saturday morning are expected to be even colder, with an overnight low of minus 33 and a daytime high tomorrow of minus 31. This will put the windchill closer to minus 50 at times. 

According to Environment Canada, this is due to an artic ridge moving through and frostbite can happen in minutes. 

“If you can, stay inside,” said meteorologist Alyssa Peterson. “Try to limit how much you do have to go into the outdoors, but if you do have to go outside, or you work outside, make sure to wear the appropriate clothing.” 

The cold temperatures are expected to linger into early next week.
