Toronto Under Extreme Cold Weather Alert As Temperatures Drop To -20 C
Toronto Public Health has advised citizens to dress as warmly as possible.
It’s not over yet, Toronto — more cold and messy weather is in the forecast for the next few days, according to Environment Canada.
“Certainly in the next week to 10 days it looks like Toronto is going to stay in a fairly active storm track,” said meteorologist Geoff Coulson. “I have got more snow in the forecast potentially late into Friday and into Saturday morning and another system following that one late Saturday into Sunday so certainly it looks like some active weather for the Toronto area over the course of the next little while.”
Toronto’s medical officer of health has issued an extreme cold weather alert due to the extreme drop in temperatures that occurred overnight. The city will see temperature lows of -13 C, with wind chills making it feel more like -20 C.
Toronto Public Health advises people to dress in layers and to also check up on family and friends who may be vulnerable during the extreme cold weather alert.
While some sources don’t predict any snow to fall on Thursday, weather reporting service Accuweather says a total of 6 to 12 cm of snowfall is still possible for tomorrow:
Stay warm, Toronto.
