A ridge of high pressure is keeping cold Arctic air over much of Manitoba for the start of the week, and many extreme cold warnings have been issued as a result.

Much of western and central Manitoba is under the warnings, including the City of Winnipeg, with wind chills below -40 either already occurring or expected to occur Monday.

Temperatures in the -30s along with winds of 10 to 15 km/h will produce extreme cold wind chills of -40 or colder.

Temperatures are expected to moderate slightly Monday morning. However, extreme cold will return for a third night to some areas on Monday evening into Tuesday.

Environment Canada says the extreme cold temperatures could result in frostbite in minutes. They say those working or exercising outdoors, young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, or without shelter are at a greater risk of cold-related issues.
