Environment Canada issued an extreme cold warning for parts of central and northern Saskatchewan today.

The weather agency issued the alert this morning due to temperatures dropping below -30, coupled with winds of up to 20 km/h, creating a wind chill of around -40 in some areas. 

A statement from the agency said these kinds of temperatures are a risk for those heading outside, and reminded people to dress in layers and take breaks from the cold. 

The extreme wind chill is expected to ease up during the day today, then return overnight, persisting into Friday.
