Update: from The Weather network/ 1.23.11
Not much snow, but plenty of cold
Extreme cold weather alerts are called in (Southern Ontario) when Environment Canada forecasts a wind chill of -15, or an actual temperature of -15°C. The temperature on Sunday will be around -17°C before the wind chill is factored in.
“Looking back at the last 12 years, we often see our lowest temperature of the winter (in Southern Ontario) close to -20°C,” says Chris Scott, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
Why has it been so cold this weekend in Ontario and Quebec? Arctic high pressure was moving from far northern Ontario to the southeast on Saturday, heading towards southern and eastern Ontario, and southern Quebec. Northerly winds were making the already low temperatures feel even colder.
After a very cold night you’ll on Saturday to a very cold morning with variable cloudiness and a temperature of minus 11°F. Expect a few flurries Saturday afternoon with the daytime high of 4°F. By Saturday evening look for scattered flurries and temps dropping to 2°F. Expect variable cloudiness and a low overnight of minus 11°F. The total precipitation accumulation in the 24-hour period form Saturday morning to Saturday overnight will be less than one inch.
Sunny morning will be sunny and minus 13 °F.
