Bundle up: Extreme chill this weekend across southern Ont.
Saturday, January 13, 2018, 9:10 PM - A drastic Arctic front which sliced through mild air across southern Ontario set the tone for a chilly -- and, for some -- snowy weekend.
Daytime temperatures crept no higher than the mid-teens across the south, while some areas like the Niagara Peninsula received some snow.
The stage was set for a bitterly cold night, with extreme cold warnings covering much of the south from the GTA eastward (though not including the city of Toronto itself).
"Extreme wind chill values near or below minus 30 are expected overnight and early Sunday morning," one such warning read Saturday evening.

"A cooler, northerly flow triggering lake-effect bands to develop Sunday, however it will be short-lived as winds shift through the day," Weather Network meteorologist Jessie Uppal said Saturday.
The next, more widespread shot of snow looks to come courtesy of a clipper system moving into the region by late day Monday through the overnight into Tuesday morning, though amounts are likely to be limited.
