The extreme cold warning for the southeast region has been lifted, but frigid temperatures persist in the area.
Environment Canada removed the warning late Sunday morning; it had been in place since Thursday afternoon. While it was in effect, temperatures plunged below -40 C on Thursday night; with the wind chill, the temperature felt colder than -50 C.
The forecasted daytime high for Sunday was -22 C. The temperature was expected to drop to -27 C on Sunday night, and then warm up to -17 C on Monday. Periods of snow are in the forecast for Sunday night and Monday.
Temperatures are projected to remain below normal for much of the rest of February.
