A polar vortex is currently making its way across Canada, causing the most widespread cold weather event of this century, reports TWN.

That will play out in southern Ontario this weekend with wind chill values of -15 C during the day and several more rounds of snow into next week. 

Toronto is expected to see snow this Saturday and on Tuesday and Thursday of next week. Up to 10 centimetres of snow could fall in the city on Tuesday and up to 20 centimetres in the hardest-hit regions of southern Ontario.

Last week, parts of the province were hit with -45 C cold, prompting several extreme cold weather alerts.

"Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill," said Environment Canada.

The City of Toronto has opened its warming centres at 129 Peter Street, 5800 Yonge Street, the Exhibition Place, Better Living Centre, and the Scarborough Civic Centre for residents in need.
