We have had family visiting the past few days from Toronto so I have been keeping even closer watch on the weather. Extreme cold weather warning continues for the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). And Toronto has one of Canada’s milder winters:
Much of the GTA remains under an extreme cold warning, issued by Environment Canada on Wednesday, as temperatures are expected to hit a low of -20 C this morning, with a wind chill of -33 C.
Northwesterly winds, combined with the low temperatures, could keep wind chill values between -30 C and -35 C through to Friday morning, after which we should start to see them rise.
If you must be outdoors today, take care to dress for the weather, as frostbite could affect exposed skin in as little as 10 minutes.
Environment Canada also suggests wearing sunglasses, lip balm and sunscreen to protect the skin and applying moisturizing to prevent windburn.
Those taking part in outdoor winter activities, such as skiing, snowmobiling, and skating are urged to wear a face mask and goggles.
“Keep moving (especially your hands and feet) to keep your blood flowing and maintain your body heat,” says the warning.
“Drink enough fluids, but avoid very cold drinks and consume warm meals regularly,” it adds.

DC hasn’t seen this since 1885 — or ever?!
5-story ‘ice volcano’ forms at NY geyser…
Great Lakes most ice since recorded time…
AND ANOTHER BLAST NEXT WEEK…
If you have not at least had a twinge of doubt about global warming during the past few days (years), you are clearly untouchable by reasoned debate (the synonym for which being “insane”).
