It will feel like a 30C temperature swing in Mississauga and Brampton by the end of the weekend
Published February 4, 2023 at 8:17 am
The extreme cold warning is in effect for Mississauga, Brampton and Milton but there is relief in sight.
The very cold wind chills are still around early this morning (Feb 4), which will hit -30c.
The good thing is that the bone-chilling cold will be ending later this morning.
Wind chill values near minus 30 will continue for a few more hours early this morning. Temperatures will moderate later this morning, bringing to an end the period of very cold wind chills.
By Sunday morning, temperatures will be back to seasonal.
Extreme cold puts everyone at risk.
Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.
Dress warmly. Dress in layers that you can remove if you get too warm. The outer layer should be wind resistant.
Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.
If it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
