Environment Canada has issued extreme cold warnings for most of northeastern, central and southern Ontario. Frigid air blowing down from the Arctic is blamed.
The forecaster says the cold will combine with light to moderate winds to create wind chill values around minus-40 this morning in the northeast and minus 30 across the south of the province. Officials stress that anyone who isn’t dressed warmly is at risk for frost bite and hypothermia. The City of Toronto is under an extreme could weather alert which triggers additional services for the city’s homeless.
