Frigid weather continues to grip northwest BC, including Terrace and Kitimat.
Environment Canada has continued an Arctic Outflow warning for inland sections of the North Coast.
Forecasters say arctic air continues to spill out to the coast through mountain passes because of a strong arctic ridge of high pressure over the interior of the province.
The combination of cold air and strong wind is causing wind chill values between minus 20 and minus 25, increasing the risk of frostbite.
Environment Canada says you can reduce the risk of frostbite by covering exposed skin with hats, scarves, and mittens or gloves, ensuring that shelter is provided for pets and outdoor animals, and preparing for unusually cold temperatures and wind.
