Today's no exception to how the past week has gone, in that there's an extreme cold warning in effect.

And just in case somebody forgot they were north of the 49th parallel, some roads aren't in ideal driving condition either.

The Highway Hotline says that winter conditions exist around Swift Current, including Highway 1 west of the city (east towards Moose Jaw isn't as bad, with seasonal driving conditions existing).

Travellers heading north or south of Swift Current on Highway 4 will also experience winter driving conditions.

Around Swift Current, the Highway Hotline states there is loose, swirling, and drifting snow in areas.

There was a little bit of light snow this morning, but winds from the southeast at 20 kilometres per hour, gusting to 40, along with a couple more centimetres expected tonight with more wind can create adverse driving conditions.

Not that anybody wants to get their vehicle stuck, but temperatures between -21 C and -25 C, with a windchill getting down to around -36 C this evening sure doesn't make becoming stranded any more desirable.
