Environment Canada has placed much of Saskatchewan under an extreme cold warning.
The weather agency says extremely cold wind chills are expected to develop Friday evening and continue into Saturday across most of the province’s central and southern regions.
Arctic air will dip temperatures to below -30 C, and winds between 10 and 15 kilometres per hour will create wind-chill values between -38 and -43.
The weather agency warns anyone planning to be outside to wear appropriate clothing.
Temperatures will likely climb to the mid -20s later Saturday. Warmer Pacific air is expected to hit the province Sunday.
