Toronto Is Warning Residents Of Freezing Temperatures As The City's Icy Week Continues
It's going to be another glacial day in the 6ix, and we've got a Toronto weather alert as a result.
Toronto issued an Extreme Cold Weather alert on Sunday, January 31, because temperatures are expected to dip below -10 C for the fifth day in a row.
Weather Canada predicts that Toronto will hover around -5 C for most of the day, with -14 C in windchill.
But temperatures are expected to drop to as low as -11 C this evening.
This is the third Extreme Cold Weather alert in four days for Toronto, which was expected to have some frigid days this week.
In their weather alert, Toronto asked residents to stay dry, wrap up warm, and check the weather before heading outside.
Having also opened its warming centres, the city has also asked people to check in with family, friends, and neighbours — particularly seniors — to make sure they're staying warm enough.
Extreme Cold Weather Alerts are typically issued when temperatures are expected to dip below -15 C, but they can also be issued after "several days and nights of cold weather in a row."
