Environment Canada is reporting that southeastern Manitoba, including Steinbach, Hanover, Niverville and Grunthal, will experience bitterly cold temperatures into the new year.

The warning shows that an area of light snow over parts of southern Manitoba will move out of our area later today. Clearing skies will allow temperatures to drop sharply with extreme wind chills near minus 40 developing overnight.

Environment Canada says that these extreme wind chills will persist into Wednesday morning, moderate slightly during the afternoon, and then return Wednesday night.

Bitterly cold temperatures will persist through the week and expand into other parts of the province.
