Environment Canada has ended the extreme cold weather warning for Burns Lake area but people are still going to need to bundle up.
The temperature is around -10 degrees in the Bulkley Valley this weekend.
Colin Fong Meteorologist with Environment Canada said the overnight lows will be -20.
“The arctic air mass continues to be settled over the BC interior so that cold air is not really moving anywhere so we will still continue to have cold conditions,” said Fong
Fong said there is still a risk of frostbite but with the lesser windchill, it’s not as severe.
The cold temperature is expected to last into next week.
