After moderating a bit somewhat Saturday afternoon as winds ease, the agency says wind chill values to -35 could return Saturday night into Sunday morning.

The mercury registered -27 C early Saturday morning, with the wind chill it felt closer to -35. The frigid temperature and wind chill brings a risk of frostbite.

People venturing outside were advised to watch for cold-related symptoms including shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, and numbness and colour changes in fingers and toes.

Dress warmly in layers with a wind-proof outer layer, and cover exposed skin —frostbite can develop within minutes, the weather agency warned.

Saturday is expected to be sunny with a high of -19 C and a wind chill of -26 in the afternoon. Again, there’s the risk of frostbite.

The forecast for Saturday night is clear and -25 C.

The agency also issued a special weather statement warning of a significant snowfall expected Sunday night and Monday, total amount of snow could be between 20-35 cm.

Sunday’s outlook is a tad warmer, sunny again with a high of -15 C then a 60 per cent chance of snow Sunday night. The forecast low is -18 C.
