An extreme cold warning continues for the Red Deer region that means frostbite can occur in minutes.
Environment Canada says the temperature will reach a high of -26 C today and a low of -38 C tonight.
Tuesday’s forecast calls for -31 C for a daytime high and -39 C for a night time low.
Frigid temperatures are expected to persist over Alberta throughout the week.
People should watch for cold related symptoms: shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness and colour change in fingers and toes.
And if it’s too cold for humans to stay outside, it’s too cold for pets.
