Extreme wind chills tonight.

Cold Arctic air remains in place across much of northwestern and Northeastern Ontario.

For the most part winds are light at the moment with the exception of Dryden where they are still experiencing extreme wind chill values.

Temperatures will moderate across Northwestern Ontario today but winds will also increase maintaining cold wind chill values near minus 35 before moderating tonight.

Colder wind chill values near minus 40 are expected across much of Northeastern Ontario tonight thus the wind chill warning remains in effect for those areas.

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

Just read the 1st and 2nd paragraph, that should clear up your confusion.

No confusion -- I said last few days (as we were included)
redford 1/23/2014 5:41:32 PM Report

Still confused... the last word in each of the first two paragraphs was "Friday"
thera 1/23/2014 5:44:46 PM Report

I guess I'm the one confused now, because I checked the last article mentioning the cold weather, Sault Ste. Marie wasn't actually mentioned. The headline said "For Sault Area" and in the article, it didn't actually list the Sault, but areas north and west of here (as in this article).

Thera it's part of how soo today does news different. Playfully changing areas where there are warnings and watches in hopes of getting clicks and perhaps causing accidents which will lead to more stories and more clicks.
