Dress warm if you're going out for New Year's Eve. Peter Kimbell from Environment Canada explained what we're in for.
"It is going to be a cold New Year's Eve. We have a low forecast of minus 29 tonight, windchill is a bit colder then that. We're saying minus 38 overnight. That's probably a bit pessimistic. We're probably not going to get that cold. Regardless, it's going to be very cold. Risk of frostbite. People need to bundle up if they're going out tonight," he said.
Kimbell said there is some relief on the way later this week.
"We've actually had a bit of a warm December, and that's probably going to continue for the first week of January. Obviously cold tonight and tomorrow, but then temperatures rebound and back up close to zero by Friday. So, some relief in store but we have to get through a pretty cold night tonight," he said.
Kimbell said we actually haven't hit minus 30 or below yet this year, compared to 2017 where we'd gone below minus 30 five times in December.
