Expect it to get a little warmer outside after this weekend.
While an extreme cold warning remains in effect for much of central Alberta, including Red Deer, Sylvan Lake and Lacombe, the weather will become a little more tolerable soon, according to Environment Canada.
“Temperatures are expected to moderate closer to seasonal normals by the start of next week,” Environment Canada’s website says.
Sunday is expected be mainly sunny and -14 C. But starting Monday, temperatures are expected to get closer to 0 C. Highs from Monday through Friday are forecasted between -4 C and 1 C.
In the meantime, people should remember to stay safe because “extreme cold puts everyone at risk,” said Environment Canada.
“Watch for cold related symptoms: shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness and colour change in fingers and toes.”
