Windchill in the -30s expected for the GTA

NEWS STAFF | posted Wednesday, Jan 30th, 2019

The GTA is back in the deep freeze and it is expected to stay frigid for the remainder of the week.

Environment Canada issued the extreme cold warning for Toronto and the rest of the GTA on Tuesday.

The national weather agency said the windchill will be between -30 and -35 over the next couple of days.

Conditions are expected to improve on Friday as milder air moves in.

There will be some sunshine on Wednesday but that won’t be enough to warm up the temperatures. 680 NEWS meteorologist Jill Taylor said the high will be 17 C but will feel like -30 C with the wind. The windchill will dip further to -32 overnight.

The cold stretch will continue on Friday morning with the temperature near -20 C but it will warm up as the day progresses.
