Canada's busiest airport, Toronto's Pearson International, is advising travellers that wintry weather, namely snow, is affecting some flight schedules this Christmas Day.
Pearson officials tweeted this morning that people should check on the status of their flights before heading to the airport.Of course Saskatchewan's issue isn't snow but cold. There is an extreme cold warning for much of central Saskatchewan including Saskatoon and Prince Albert as well as west to North Battleford down through Outlook, Hanley and as far south as Regina then east towards Foam Lake and Humboldt. This cold Arctic airmass will remain entrenched over the region for the foreseeable future so expect extreme wind chill values in the -40 to -45 range, especially during the overnight and morning hours, for at least the next 6 days.
