Watches & Warnings

Special Weather Statement
Issued: Environment Canada
extreme cold warning
for Yukon and northern British Columbia

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Extreme cold warning for:
      Old Crow.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
==Discussion==

A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

An extremely cold Arctic airmass has settled over the region. 

Very cold temperatures combining with light winds will result in 
wind chill values falling to near minus 50 tonight. The extreme cold 
is expected to persist into Thursday morning.

While anyone who isn't dressed warmly is at risk in cold weather 
conditions, some are at greater risk than others for frost bite and 
hypothermia: 
- homeless people 
- outdoor workers 
- people living in homes that are poorly insulated (with no heat or 
no power) 
- people with certain medical conditions such as diabetes, 
peripheral neuropathy and diseases affecting the blood vessels, 
people taking certain medications including Beta-blockers 
- winter sport enthusiasts 
- people who consume excess alcohol 
- infants and 
- seniors. 

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.
