Extreme Cold Weather Alert cancelled
The City of Toronto has cancelled the Extreme Cold Weather Alert that was issued for Toronto on February 16.

An alert is called when there is danger to homeless people from extreme cold weather or extreme winter weather conditions. It is usually called in the morning when Environment Canada:
• predicts a coming overnight temperature of -15 degrees Celsius or lower, without wind chill;
• issues a wind chill warning for outdoor activity for people in the Toronto area; and/or
• predicts extreme weather conditions, such as a blizzard, an ice storm or sudden drops in temperature.
