A Big Chunk Of Ontario Is Being Warned About 'Extreme Cold' With Wind Chills Of -45 C
Buckle up and bundle up, folks, because the Ontario weather forecast says we've got a cold week ahead of us.
Environment Canada has issued an Extreme Cold warning for parts of the province, and it could feel as cold as -45 degrees with wind chill for the next couple of days.
Expected wind chill in parts of Ontario
The weather alert is in place for all of Northwestern Ontario, from Superior West to Fort Severn.
Wind chill temperatures up to -45 are expected for Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Monday night, but the cold doesn't stop there.
Environment Canada says that it could feel like -40 with wind chill for every night of the next week in parts of Northwestern Ontario.
"Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill," the Extreme Cold Alert says.
"Watch for colour changes on fingers and toes, pain, numbness, a tingling sensation, or swelling. If present, move indoors and begin warming."
Toronto is not included in Environment Canada's warning, but the city has issued its own Extreme Cold Weather alert in advance of frigid temperatures tonight.
