Strong winds and low temps blow through GTA

CityNews | posted Sunday, Jan 19th, 2014


Winds along the shores of Lake Ontario could kick up to 70 km/h as a sharp cold front sweeps south across southern Ontario Sunday, reaching the 401 corridor overnight.

Following the front, an arctic air mass will settle over the area, sending the mercury down with wind chill values between -25 C and -35 Tuesday morning.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for much of southern Ontario, including the City of Toronto, Halton, Peel, York, Durham and Hamilton.

The front could bring two to four centimetres of snow in some places, with areas north east of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay potentially seeing up to 10 centimetres.

Strong winds are developing ahead of the front, and gusts along the shores of the Great Lakes could be as high as 50 to 70 km/h.

The northeast shore of Lake Erie and Sandbanks Provincial Park in Picton could see winds as fast as 90 km/h.

Intense flurries and blowing snow could result in zero visibility at times.
