“Extreme cold puts everyone at risk,” Environment Canada said. “Close. Freezing bites can develop on exposed skin within minutes, especially with cold winds.”
“Watch for cold-related symptoms: shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle aches and weakness, numbness and discoloration in fingers and toes.”
Conditions are expected to improve by Sunday with a high of -7 C
For most of January in Toronto, there were several warnings for extreme cold weather with temperatures well below zero for most of the month.
