The coldest shot of winter 2015-16 has enveloped New Brunswick with an early morning low of -21.0 C in Greater Moncton and as frigid as -32 C in central and northern parts of the province.

Wind chills could drop as low as -35 by Monday morning.

The Arctic dome of air has also led Environment Canada to issue extreme cold warnings for much of Ontario, Quebec, Labrador and all of New Brunswick except the Southeast and Fundy coast.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates health risks such as frost bite and hypothermia.
