A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

The coldest air of the season has settled across southern Ontario 
for the weekend. Very cold wind chill values between about minus 35 
and minus 45 are occurring this morning, aided by bitterly cold 
northerly winds. Wind chill conditions will improve only marginally 
this afternoon, then fall below minus 35 again tonight in most 
locales. Some improvement is expected on Sunday as temperatures 
moderate somewhat. Somewhat milder weather will arrive on family day 
Monday.

While anyone who isn't dressed warmly is at risk in cold weather 
conditions, some are at greater risk than others for frost bite and 
hypothermia: - homeless people - outdoor workers - people living in 
homes that are poorly insulated (with no heat or no power) - people 
with certain medical conditions such as diabetes, peripheral 
neuropathy and diseases affecting the blood vessels, people taking 
certain medications including Beta-blockers - winter sport 
enthusiasts - people who consume excess alcohol - infants and - 
seniors. Wear appropriate clothing. - Always wear clothing 
appropriate for the weather. Synthetic and wool fabrics provide 
better insulation. Some synthetic fabrics are designed to keep 
perspiration away from your body which keep you dry and further 
reduce your risk. - Dress in layers with a wind resistant outer 
layer. You can remove layers if you get too warm (before you start 
sweating) or add a layer if you get cold. - Wear warm socks, gloves, 
a hat and scarf in cold weather. Be sure to cover your nose to 
protect it. - If you get wet, change into dry clothing as soon as 
possible. You lose heat faster when you're wet. Extreme cold 
warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill 
creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and 
hypothermia. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued 
by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to 
storm.Ontario(at)ec.Gc.CA or tweet reports to (hash)onstorm.
