An all-time cold record was shattered in Saskatoon on Wednesday when temperatures fell to a tongue-chomping -42.6C, according to Environment Canada. The previous record low of -41.7C was set way back in 1907.
Environment Canada issued an extreme cold warning Wednesday, reminding the province of its cold weather strategy — providing shelter for people in need.
The Salvation Army is open 24 hours to provide support for people in the cold. By Wednesday morning, the shelter reached maximum capacity and was in overflow, putting extra cots in the dining area.
Environment Canada said the very cold temperatures will last until the night.
By Thursday morning wind chill values will moderate, but not for long as the province is expected to return to extreme temperatures Thursday night and Friday morning.
