The Northern Canadian Territories will see the extreme cold temperatures come back once again.   


The Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut  will all see at least a 5 degree drop, with some areas seeing temperatures drop as low as minus 22 degrees....as a day temperature.   The night temperatures will be even colder, with some areas in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories experiencing the low minus 20's, that will come with wind chills close to minus 35 degrees especially on Tuesday night.   There is a strong chance for extreme cold warnings to appear in areas including the city of Iqaluit. 

If these warnings do appear, and you live in these areas, please do not take this situation lightly.   These warnings mean that you can get frostbite within 10 minutes (if not less than that), of being outside.  Please do not go outdoors if you do not absolutely have to.  

Please keep it here,  for more on this situation including up to date watches, and warnings  As well as, even more forecasts, news, videos, and more!
