Extreme cold warning issued for:

Niagara, Ont.

Current details:

A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

Wind chill values near -30 are expected overnight due to a bitterly cold Arctic air mass affecting the region.

Wind chill values will moderate above the warning criteria of -30 on Monday as winds ease, but cold temperatures near -20 or colder are still expected Monday night.

A milder air mass will begin to move in Tuesday.

Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.

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

If it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.

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