Calgary feels cold.

So cool, in fact, that Environment Canada has announced an extremely cold warning today for Calgary, all surrounding areas and much of the province of Alberta.

With the temperatures expected to be between -26 and -30 C today, wind energy is a threat to make the temperature cool with -40 C.

Environment Canada advised people to deal with them to avoid obstruction and hypothermia. Due to low temperatures and wind cooler, frostbite can occur within minutes. He also warned the service, if it's too cold for people, it's too cold for pets, so indoor animals should be kept.

Symptoms of problems caused by the cold include a lack of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, fatigue, and color changes in fingers or fingers.

For today, there will be 30% chance of flurries for morning commuting. It is anticipated that Tuesday will be sunny with an average of -24 C.

The Calgary Catholic and Catholic Catholic School Education Board said that all of their schools will be open on Monday but give cold weather advice to parents to ensure that children are dressed properly and are not at risk of getting frozen by bus.

The CBE said that there may be a temporary delay so "children should have prepared well for the weather and are not left unattended in bus stops for any period of time, in any circumstances." Parents and guardians can monitor the yellow school bus service using the MyBusStop app.

Information about the effects of weather in public schools will be posted on the CBE website or on Twitter using the account @yyCBEdu The Catholic area asked parents to monitor local media for updates.

Meanwhile, the Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School in Okotoks will be closed on Monday, indicating very cold temperatures and poor road conditions.

Despite the deep ice, Adam Loria told Calgary EMS that there were only two cold-cold emergency calls in Calgary between Fridays and Sundays, but the patient did not need to stick to & # 39; r hospital.

Kala Ortwein, communications manager with the Calgary Drop and Rehabilitation Association, said the numbers of the refuge had been "quite consistent" during the cold period. He said the staff worked "keep everyone warm" and there is still a "lot of place" in the center. Offering emergency services to more than 20,000 people of Calgarists each year, anyone who needs warm clothing or room for night and night can visit the Drop in Center at 1 Dermot Baldwin Way S.E.

Meanwhile, the police in Edmonton are investigating what is believed to be the death related to a cold weather man found in a parking lot to the north of Clarke Stadium about 10 am on Sunday.
