Environment Canada's extreme cold warning continues

The weather agency says that an extreme cold warning is now in effect and that 2017 is "about to end on a very cold note".

"Although winds will be relatively light, the extreme cold is expected to produce windchill values below minus 30 overnight into Sunday, and again Sunday night".

Environment Canada also says the bitter cold will continue New Year's Day and potentially on Tuesday.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures pose health risks, such as frost bite and hypothermia. "New Year's Eve revellers are cautioned that windchill values will be near minus 30 late Sunday evening as we ring in 2018", the weather statement read.
