As an Arctic airmass descends southward across Alberta this weekend, this extreme cold warning will continue to be expanded.

Extreme cold puts everyone at risk.

Outdoor workers should take regularly scheduled breaks to warm up.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.
