Bundle up, Hamilton — it’s going to be especially cold tonight.

The city’s Medical Officer of Health is issuing a cold weather alert effective tonight (Jan. 23), with temperatures set to drop to -16 degrees Celsius in the evening and a chance of flurries.

“The best place for you during a Cold Alert is indoors,” the city says. Residents who have to be outside are advised to dress in layers of clothing, drink warm fluids, and avoid strenuous exercise.
