Most of Alberta and Saskatchewan remain in the icy grip of an extreme cold warning. Temperatures overnight are expected to dip as low as minus-40 to -50 degrees Celsius in some areas.

Southern Ontario is dealing with a handful of snow squall warnings, watches and advisories.

Quebec currently has a winter storm weather statement in place along the Jacques Cartier Strait

Atlantic Canada is in for a mixed bag today, with a snowfall warning covering most of New Brunswick. A rainfall warning is in effect for Nova Scotia’s Atlantic coast. There are also wind warnings in effect for almost all of Newfoundland.
