Today is the coldest day in Toronto this year
At -15 degrees Celsius, with a wind chill of -23, Toronto is currently experiencing its coldest morning of 2017. Yayyy.
Local meteorologist Jill Taylor says that these are, by far, the chilliest temperatures people have woken up to in the city all year.
The second-coldest morning of 2017 was back in March, according to Taylor, when thermometers hit -13.4 degrees Celsius mid-month.
Just looking through stats at #Toronto YYZ. It’s coldest morning(Dec 14)so far this year! Yesterday -12.9 in morning and then back in March -13.4C but as of 6am today at -15.6 Extra, extra layers needed this morning!— Jill Taylor (@jilltaylor680) December 14, 2017
Toronto (obviously) remains under an extreme cold weather alert today. The city's public health department first issued the alert on Tuesday, based on Environment Canada's prediction that the wind chill would reach at least -20 overnight.
Good luck out there, morning commuters. Don't forget your hats. And scarves. And mitts. And boots. And long-johns. And thermals. And parkas. *sigh*
