An arctic outflow warning still remains in effect for Whistler and the Sea to Sky Highway.

According to a statement from Environment Canada, “strong outflow winds and cold wind chill values” are expected to continue over the next few days.

The weather agency says that northeast winds between 40 and 60 km/h, as well as gusts as high as 90 km/h, will occur. The combination of high winds and frigid temperatures will create a windchill of -20°C or lower.

Residents and drivers are reminded to be prepared for “unusually cold temperatures and strong winds” and to ensure that pets and outdoor animals have adequate shelter.

Fortunately, conditions are expected to moderate later in the week.
