Coldest weather of the season expected this week

BT Toronto | posted Sunday, Jan 4th, 2015

Residents in the GTA will be hit with the coldest weather of the season this week, according to Environment Canada.

A “frigid Arctic air mass” will arrive Sunday night, leading to a deep freeze in southern Ontario.

Extreme cold warnings are likely throughout the work week due to the combination of cold and wind.

Meanwhile, a snow-squall watch is in effect for parts of the GTA, including Newmarket, Uxbridge and the northern part of York and Durham regions.

Heavy and blowing snow is expected Sunday evening and will continue until Monday evening, reducing visibility. Environment Canada said snow will accumulate quickly.

“Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably,” the agency said.

“Changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common.”

A freezing rain warning for the same area, which was put in place Sunday morning as temperatures remained near 0 C, is now over.
