Environment Canada issued a wind chill warning for the City of Toronto on Monday, with the overnight wind chill Monday night into Tuesday morning expected to hit -31.
The Environment Canada website stated that "Persons in or near this area should be on the lookout for adverse weather conditions and take necessary safety precautions."
A special weather statement was also issued for Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area warning of strong winds, blowing snow and poor visibility.
Blowing snow made for a messy morning commute Monday with some parts of the GTA receiving 10cm of snow.
A snow squall warning was issued for Northern Durham and York Regions with strong westerly winds causing blowing snow. Environment Canada warned of reduced visibility due to the poor travel conditions.
