The wind chill warning for Toronto and the GTA from Environment Canada has ended. And Toronto cancelled its extreme cold weather alert on Friday afternoon after issuing it on Monday.

There’s a high of -11 C in the forecast for the last day of February. The average high this time of year is 2 C (yes, above zero), 680News meteorologist Jill Taylor said.

Friday will be sunny and cold, with a low near -12 C.

Temperatures will rise overnight, with scattered flurries and a brief break from the bitter cold on Saturday. Saturday’s high is near 0 C and the low is near -13 C.

“If you’ve got any ice or snow around your house, you’ve got to chip it off and get rid of it. Maybe even throw some salt on there on Saturday,” CityNews meteorologist Natasha Ramsahai said, as the warming weather could cause it to melt.

“Two to five centimetres of snow are on the way from Saturday night into Sunday morning,” she said.

On Sunday, the colder weather will return, with a high near -7 C and a low near -18 C.
