Yet another bitterly cold Arctic air mass is entrenched over Northern Ontario.

Temperatures are forecast to drop to near or below minus 30 tonight and early Monday morning.

Light to moderate winds will combine with these cold temperatures to give wind chill values in the minus 40 to minus 45 range.

Frostbite (damage, sometimes permanent, to skin and body tissue due to freezing) and hypothermia (a life threatening drop in body temperature) will occur if adequate precautions are not taken when outdoors.

These can occur within minutes.
