A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

A cold front will pass through the regions tonight. Very cold 
temperatures will follow in its wake, along with gusty northwest 
winds. Very cold wind chill values between about minus 30 and minus 
35 are expected overnight and Saturday morning. Wind chill 
conditions will improve only marginally on Saturday afternoon, then 
fall below minus 30 again on Saturday night in most locales. Some 
improvement is expected on Sunday.

While anyone who isn't dressed warmly is at risk in cold weather 
conditions, some are at greater risk than others for frost bite and 
hypothermia: - homeless people - outdoor workers - people living in 
homes that are poorly insulated (with no heat or no power) - people 
with certain medical conditions such as diabetes, peripheral 
neuropathy and diseases affecting the blood vessels, people taking 
certain medications including Beta-blockers - winter sport 
enthusiasts - people who consume excess alcohol - infants and - 
seniors. Wear appropriate clothing. - Always wear clothing 
appropriate for the weather. Synthetic and wool fabrics provide 
better insulation. Some synthetic fabrics are designed to keep 
perspiration away from your body which keep you dry and further 
reduce your risk. - Dress in layers with a wind resistant outer 
layer. You can remove layers if you get too warm (before you start 
sweating) or add a layer if you get cold. - Wear warm socks, gloves, 
a hat and scarf in cold weather. Be sure to cover your nose to 
protect it. - If you get wet, change into dry clothing as soon as 
possible. You lose heat faster when you're wet. Extreme cold 
warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill 
creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and 
hypothermia. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued 
by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to 
storm.Ontario(at)ec.Gc.CA or tweet reports to (hash)onstorm.
