Extreme Cold Warning issued for Toronto


An Extreme Cold Warning issued by Environment and Climate Change Canada at 0:44 AM EST Saturday 29 January 2022 continues in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA) today. ECCC says a period of very cold wind chills between minus 25 and minus 30 celsius will continue in the area tonight through Sunday morning.

Temperatures Saturday afternoon are expected to be around -10 but feeling like -16, then gradually dropping to -16 at night, feeling like -23. Sunday will start off even colder than Saturday at -14 but it will gradually climb to -5 in the afternoon and -8 Sunday night.

If you are outside is greatly advised to cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.

Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.

Watch for cold related symptoms: shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness and colour change in fingers and toes.

Keep your pets safe

If it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
