Warning Statement

Extreme wind chills tonight.

A low pressure system currently just south of Lake Superior is expected to track southeastward toward Lake Erie tonight.

Behind this system a fresh surge of Arctic air is moving into the area.

The cold Arctic air combined with moderate northerly winds is expected to generate extreme wind chill values colder than minus 40.

Exercise caution when venturing outdoors as frostbite may occur on exposed skin in less than 10 minutes.

Do they mean Extreme chill warnings issued NORTH of the Sault?
I was under the impression the alert was for the Sault, but I don't believe it is.

Thanks found my answer. Extreme chill warnings of -40 is much different than -22 when heading outside.
Hate to be anal about this, but think the warning is misleading and should specifically read the warning are only for points north... of the Sault.
Anyways! Whatever!

Yes "buddyjewel" you are right. Sootoday is starting to get a "track record" for misleading Story Headlines.

It is clearly for north of the Sault by the weather alert news release.

Sootoday just labels news articles wrong to get more clicks so they can brag about it later..
