If you thought this past weekend was bad, Toronto, the worst is yet to come. The City of Toronto issued a cold weather alert on January 10th,  warning the public to seek shelter and stay warm as temperatures dipped to -15°C, feeling closer to -24°C.  Toronto will likely see another cold weather warning as we approach the weekend - the current forecast for the end of this week predicts -26°C  weather with the windchill factor.

Over the next five days, the city will get some relief from the extreme cold. Tomorrow, January  15th will reach a high of 2°C, and the current forecast shows the work week won't feel any colder than -8°C. But, temperatures will take a steep dive on Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th.
