    Wind chills down to -50 C this morning in Swift Current Saskatchewan

    The warning regions now stretch from Peace River and Grande Prairie down through the rest of Alberta, and across southern Saskatchewan from Lloydminster to Regina, Weyburn and Estevan. In British Columbia, this same Arctic airmass is driving chill winds through the mountain passes, and warnings have been issued in southeastern regions for wind chills down near -35 C and in Fraser Valley, Howe Sound, and the Central Coast and North Coast, for arctic outflow causing wind chills in the -20s.

      Not only wind chills but possibly some record lows. The record low for the 7th is -37.2 in Red Deer and it’s at -37.0 as of midnight. And you know it’s bad when B.C. gets those Arctic outflow warnings.
