Ottawa could see record-breaking cold
It will be a sunny but frigid start to the weekend and Environment Canada has issued an extreme cold warning for Ottawa.
The forecast calls for wind chill values between -35 C to -42 C today.
The forecast high is -17 C but it will feel more like -37 C with the wind chill this morning, and more like -21 C this afternoon.
These temperatures could cause frostbite within minutes on exposed skin. Ottawa Public Health has also issued a frostbite warning, which it does when the wind chill is forecast to go below -35.
It will be sunny throughout the day with clear skies tonight, and overnight temperatures will drop to -27 C and -31 C with the wind chill.
