Much of Manitoba remains under an extreme cold warning Saturday morning with wind chills below -40.

Environment Canada says Arctic air will continue to move over the province, pushed along by winds upwards of 50 km/h.

In Winnipeg, a morning wind chill of -42 is expected. A daytime high of -20 in the afternoon will result in a wind chill of -30. Much of southern Manitoba will experience similar conditions for Christmas Eve.

Parts of northern Manitoba are also under extreme cold warnings, with temperatures below -30 this morning, and wind chills near -45.

Some relief will be on the way shortly for southern Manitoba, with daytime highs reaching to the negative mid-teens next week, and -8 on Wednesday.

Frostbite can occur in minutes when under extreme cold warnings, and Environment Canada urges people to take appropriate preventative measures, such as covering their skin, and dressing in layers.

The normal daytime high for Winnipeg this time of year is -11.4 and the low is -21.1.
