Wind chill warning issued for Toronto and GTA
6 1

Southern Ontario and the GTA have been battered this winter, ice storms, big snow falls and temperatures we haven't seen in two decades.

After a short reprieve, the cold weather is coming back.

Environment Canada issued a wind chill warning for the Greater Toronto Area on Monday calling for wind chills of minus 30 to 35 Monday night and Tuesday morning.

"An arctic airmass has settled over southern Ontario.  The combination of cold temperatures and moderate northwesterly winds is expected to produce wind chill values minus 30 or colder. Areas east of a line from Port Carling through Haliburton and Kaladar to Brockville - Leeds and Grenville wind chill values could reach minus 35 or colder."the statement read.
 

This taste of winter is expected to be accompanied by strong winds of up to 70 km/h along the Great Lakes. They could gust up to 90 km/h on the northeast shore of Lake Erie and Picton-Sandbanks Park.

Tuesday is slated to be the coldest day for the GTA, with the mercury dipping to around -20. The windchill will make it feel more like -30 or -35. There won't be much difference between the high and the low that day - just a few degrees.

Flurries and snow squalls are forecast for Monday in the snow belt southeast of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay.

Environment Canada tells Newstalk 1010 we'll likely see warmer temperatures by the end of the week, but we'll likely see a few more cold events before winter is up.    

 In the meantime, the City of Toronto issued an Extreme Cold Weather Alert in an effort to boost services for the city's homeless.
