A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

The coldest air of the season has settled across central and eastern 
Ontario for the weekend as a large Arctic high pressure slowly moves 
eastward across the Great Lakes. Wind chills of minus 35 to minus 40 
are expected once again this morning as bitterly cold Arctic air 
continues to settle over the area. Slow improvement of the wind 
chills is expected this afternoon as the strengthening February sun 
helps to moderate this frigid Arctic air mass, with temperatures 
inching upward a few degrees. Somewhat milder weather along with 
continued improvement in the wind chill is expected on family day 
Monday.

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. Avoid alcohol. - Consuming alcohol before you go 
out in the cold may increase your risk of hypothermia because it 
increases blood flow to the extremities of the body. You may 
actually feel warm even though you are losing heat. 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.
