Manitobans are waking up to another day of extreme cold warnings, and there's no relief for a while.

Environment Canada says that a period of severely cold wind chills is expected, and the extreme cold will persist for a few days.

An Arctic ridge of high pressure has allowed for a very cold air mass to settle over Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Along with winds of 10 to 20 km/h, extreme wind chill values between -40 and -50 are expected over most of southern Manitoba and Saskatchewan once again today.

The bitterly cold air will remain over the Prairies for much of the next week.

Environment Canada reminds people that extreme cold puts everyone at risk.

Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.

People should dress warmly and in layers that you can remove if you get too warm. The outer layer should be wind resistant.
