With nighttime lows nearing -30C, and winds of 20 to 30 km/h expected this evening, Environment Canada has issued an extreme wind chill warning for this area.

An extreme wind chill warning for the Thunder Bay area remains in effect.

Environment Canada updated its wind chill warning just after 11 a.m. Wednesday. The warning predicts wind chill values will range from -40C to -45C tonight and into Thursday morning.

According to Environment Canada, the cold temperatures are the result of a cold front moving southward from Northern Manitoba. That cold front is bringing with it a fresh blast of Arctic air.

The cold temperatures will combine with north winds of 20 to 30 kilometres per hour.

During the wind chill warning, exposed skin can become frostbitten in less than 10 minutes.

Global warming is a myth and dream made up by Suzuki and other so called scientists.

I read on a magazine which I cannot recall right now stating that the ice in Antarctica is actually expanding.
Also, I do recall global warming people saying northern Ontario would benefit from this theory because the temps would get warmer and we milder winters.

Yeah, nothing but hogwash.

Sometimes it is better to remain silent, and be merely THOUGHT a fool - than to open your mouth and remove any doubt.

Yes because David Suzuki concocted this grand elaborate plan involving thousands and thousands of scientists, people, data, etc... to play a trick on you.

We'll you exposed him! Good for you.

I was told it was going to get so warm I could sell my furnace for scrap metal.

Make it warm up and I'll quit whining!

They said, by 2100, this part of the planet will enjoy a more temperate climate with longer, drier, warmer summers and shorter, warmer, wetter winters. No one said "so, make plans to sell your furnace because winter no longer exists".

If you're so incapable of understanding this, what else are you clueless about?

How do you know what was said to me? Do you always jump to such wide reaching conclusions?

maybe that's why you think the world is going to torch us all to death?

I know I cant sell my furnace for scrap yet, but if this super cold winter keeps up Im sure it will be worn out soon... and its only 2 years old!!

You must be psychic tsb.. how else would anyone know what was said and what wasn't? Are you omnipresent too?

besides the Earth has been warming for quite some time. Didn't this whole area used to be covered by glaciers? Were not the Great Lakes formed by glacial travel (doesn't that remind you of riding the bus?) and remained full of water when they receeded?

It seems to me ice has been melting for a lot longer than the industrial revolution has been chugging along. I guess those dinosaur fossils in Alberta were warm blooded and covered with fur too?

How come the temps on mars went up and down the same times ours did? Are they burning coal too?

somebody please save us!!!

He knows what was said to you because I quote "I was told it was going to get so warm I could sell my furnace for scrap metal." That was taken directly from your comment.
Get off this site. Get out of this town. Get out of this country.

more evidence of global warming.

when does it start getting warmer out? these supposed scientists told me we would be ice free a decade ago but I have more cold, ice and snow than ever. I wish it would hurry up!

You obviously don't know the meaning of global warming. It does not simply mean the globe will be warmed. Research research research.
Also, a lack of winter (as you seem to be hoping for) might sound nice but it would have serious detrimental consequences. Learning!

so global warming does not mean the globe will warm?

how do you expect anyone to believe that nonsense skyhigh?
