34 out of Alberta’s 34 regions are in the red on Environment Canada’s national alert map, being joined by over half of Saskatchewan and parts of Manitoba.

The alerts are warning of wind chill values reaching as low as -45°C alongside a serious risk of frostbite or hypothermia for anyone spending too much time outside with insufficient coverage.

Albertans are also reminded that if it’s too cold for you to be outside, then it’s too cold for your pet to be outside.

The warning issued for the City of Calgary states that the wind chills should moderate by Saturday afternoon, though will return on Sunday night in parts of southern Alberta.

So bundle up, Alberta, and hold onto the fact that spring is only 18 more days away.
