appy New Year!
2018 starts with a bitterly cold day. Windchill values near or below minus 30 are expected in most areas early this morning. If we look at the 7 day forecast, the first time that we can expect to see highs in the single digits looks like Sunday next!
Meanwhile, latest indications continue to show that these very cold conditions may persist into Tuesday for most areas before moderating somewhat around midweek.
Extreme cold puts everyone at risk so please check on older family, friends and neighbours. And make sure that pets are looked after as well; if it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.
