We all were tricked thinking the winter is over . But not yet. The nasty cold weather makes a u -turn and comes back with full strength.
The Toronto city is now under extreme cold alert . Read more on how to stay safe in the cold.
For environment Canada , this is the coldest air of the season across Southern Ontario for the weekend.
“Very cold wind chill values between about minus 30 and minus 40 are occurring this morning, aided by bitterly cold northerly winds. Wind chill conditions will improve only marginally this afternoon, then fall below minus 30 again tonight in most locales. Some improvement is expected on Sunday as temperatures moderate somewhat.
Milder weather will arrive on Family Day Monday with temperatures approaching normal values for this time of year.” Says a release from environment Canada .
How to beat the cold
- 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.
