A snowfall warning is in effect for Toronto as up to 20 cm of snow are expected to hit the city Monday evening and overnight.

But Toronto will get no sympathy from the rest of Southern Ontario as all 31 other regions are dealing with their own weather warnings — including extreme cold and special weather statements.

Meanwhile, all of Northern Ontario is currently under an Extreme Cold warning, with wind chill values of -40°C to -50°C expected across much of the northern half of the province.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill values this low. Pets should also stay inside.

Sadly, The Weather Network doesn’t seem to think this is going to end anytime soon.

Stay safe and stay warm, Ontario.
