Winter temperatures continue in Ontario, with extreme cold warnings still in effect in central and northern Ontario.
A wind chill of -35 to -45 is observed in these areas.
This arctic air mass of scathing cold will persist for the remainder of the weekend: conditions will slowly begin to subside on Monday.
Meanwhile, snow will continue to fall in eastern Ontario.
A snow accumulation of 10 to 15 cm is possible near Quebec and the border with New York State. In addition, visibility will be reduced to near zero under blowing snow due to strong winds gusting 60 km / h.
In the south of the province, snow squalls are expected.
Very low temperatures and a wind chill of -20 to -30 will accompany these squalls.
Environment Canada’s meteorologist Alexandre Parent advises motorists to be cautious, particularly in the eastern part of the province, while visibility may be reduced in some places.
It also reminds those who will have to go outside to plan outings and to dress warmly.
Flights to and from the east of the country have also been canceled.
