Dawson Creek school buses have been cancelled due to extreme cold.
A multi-day episode of very cold wind chills is expected. A bitterly cold arctic ridge of high pressure will remain entrenched over the area for several days.
North winds near 20 km/h will create periods of wind chill values below minus 40.
"Extreme cold puts everyone at risk," says our extreme weather man Sky Hammer.
"Watch for cold related symptoms: shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness and colour change in fingers and toes."
