Souris family of schools are closed for the day while the rest of Prince Edward Island's first day of school for 2014 has begun with a one-hour delay.

Both the English and French language school boards have implemented the delay this morning.

And it's a frigid morning to be waiting at the bus stop.

Environment Canada's Weather Office reports a cold airmass is expected to drop temperatures this morning to below -25C. These frigid temperatures along with brisk northwesterly winds will produce extreme wind chill values below -35C. Wind chill values will improve later today but temperatures will remain frigid.
