After the city of Toronto issued an extreme cold weather alert last week, temperatures are expected to drop in the evening and overnight in the area. These alerts activate the city’s cold weather response plan, which includes opening more shelter spaces and warming centres for vulnerable citizens. The cold temperatures come on the heels of a major snowstorm last weekend. It is expected that Southern Ontario is going to get hit with another brutal 20 cm of snow this weekend. Other areas have already received above-average snowfall for the season.
