The coldest wind chill values will be between minus 40 and minus 45.

Extreme cold continues for northern Ontario. An Arctic ridge of high 
pressure sliding southward through the American Midwest continues to 
usher in bitterly cold winds and frigid temperatures over Ontario. 
After temporary improvement this afternoon under the strengthening 
February sun, extreme wind chill will return once again tonight into 
Sunday morning. Wind chills will finally improve more significantly 
on Valentines day as temperatures moderate upward.

Wear appropriate clothing. - Always wear clothing appropriate for 
the weather. Synthetic and wool fabrics provide better insulation. 
Some synthetic fabrics are designed to keep perspiration away from 
your body which keep you dry and further reduce your risk. - Dress 
in layers with a wind resistant outer layer. You can remove layers 
if you get too warm (before you start sweating) or add a layer if 
you get cold. - Wear warm socks, gloves, a hat and scarf in cold 
weather. Be sure to cover your nose to protect it. - If you get wet, 
change into dry clothing as soon as possible. You lose heat faster 
when you're wet. Protect yourself. - On sunny days wear sun glasses, 
lip Balm and sunscreen to protect your skin from UV and keep it 
moisturized to help prevent windburn. - Wear a face mask and goggles 
if you are participating in winter activities such as skiing, 
snowmobiling and skating to protect your face from frostbite and 
windburn. - Keep moving (especially your hands and feet) to keep 
your blood flowing and maintain your body heat. - Drink enough 
fluids, but avoid very cold drinks and consume warm meals regularly. 
Avoid alcohol. - Consuming alcohol before you go out in the cold may 
increase your risk of hypothermia because it increases blood flow to 
the extremities of the body. You may actually feel warm even though 
you are losing heat. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts 
issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an 
email to storm.Ontario(at)ec.Gc.CA or tweet reports to 
(hash)onstorm.
