The cold forcing Environment and Climate Change Canada to issue an extreme cold warning early Thursday morning, as wind chill exaggerated the temperature to -52.

The ambient temperature at 10:00 a.m. was colder than Alert, Nunavut, the northernmost settlement in the world, and colder than Yakutsk, Russia, known as the coldest city in the world. It was even colder in Weyburn than it was at the south pole.

The entire province is shivering in this cold spell. Prince Albert was reported as the coldest part of the province with a temperature of -42.5°, while Rockglen is the warmest part of Saskatchewan at -28.5°.

The cold spell is expected to break in the coming days. You can get the full details with the five-day forecast.
