Toronto under extreme cold weather alert

News staff | posted Monday, Jan 18th, 2016

The City of Toronto remains under an extreme cold weather alert on Monday morning.

The warning was first issued on Sunday, when the temperature felt like -20.

Similar temperatures are in store for the city on Monday: The high is just -7 C, 680 News meteorologist Jill Taylor said, and it will feel like -15 with the wind chill. On Monday evening, the low will dip to -12C, with a wind chill near -21.

There will be flurries with gusty winds out of the northwest, and in areas that typically snow squalls, 3-7 centimetres of snow could accumulate.

The snow caused school bus cancellations in Grey-Bruce and other areas. Click here for the full list.

During extreme cold weather alerts, the city provides extra services for homeless people, including TTC tokens to get to shelter and increased street outreach.

Also, the city has two 24-hour extreme cold weather drop-ins open for all of January and February.
