A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

A very cold Arctic air mass has become established across 
northwestern Ontario. Northwest winds of 10 to 20 km/h are combining 
with low temperatures near minus 30 to produce extreme wind chill 
values near minus 40 this morning. After a temporary improvement of 
wind chills under mainly sunny skies this afternoon, extreme cold 
wind chills near minus 40 are expected to return again tonight into 
Tuesday morning.

People outdoors should dress appropriately as frost bite on exposed 
skin may occur in a few minutes.

Watch for cold related symptoms and complaints which include:
- respiratory: shortness of breath, wheezing and cough
- cardiovascular: chest pain and arrhythmias
- circulation: colour change of finger and toes, pain, numbness and 
tickling sensation in extremities
- muscle: pain, stiffness, swelling, restricted movement, weakness
- skin: itching, pale.
If you experience these symptoms when exposed to the cold, move 
indoors and begin warming.

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.

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

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so 
stay tuned to your local media or weatheradio. Email reports of 
severe weather to storm.Ontario(at)ec.Gc.CA or tweet with the hashtag 
(hash)onstorm.
