These warnings are issued when the temperatures are so cold that people are at risk of frost bite and hypothermia. Environment Canada is even issuing a list of symptoms people may be experiencing due to the extreme cold which includes: shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness and colour change in fingers and toes.

Environment Canada issues special weather statement for TorontoWeather, News
Environment Canada issues special weather statement for Toronto

After the initial excitement of record-breaking warm weather in Toronto, Environment Canada has now issued a freezing rain warning.
According to the weather agency, freezing rain is expected for Wednesday.

“Precipitation is expected to begin Wednesday morning as ice pellets before becoming mixed with freezing rain near midday,” states the weather statement. “Freezing rain could persist for several hours Wednesday afternoon before ending in the evening or overnight.”

The Wednesday evening commute will likely be affected due to the potential for untreated surfaces to become icy.

Expect a high of -3°C on Wednesday, mixed with that freezing drizzle. But the temperature will soar back up to above freezing by Thursday, when highs are expected to reach 4°C.

SASKATOON SHATTERS 112-YEAR-OLD COLD RECORD
« Reply #25 on: February 08, 2019, 07:17:38 AM »
https://electroverse.net/saskatoon-shatters-112-year-old-cold-record/

An all-time cold record was shattered in Saskatoon on Wednesday when temperatures fell to a tongue-chomping -42.6C, according to Environment Canada. The previous record low of -41.7C was set way back in 1907.

Environment Canada issued an extreme cold warning Wednesday, reminding the province of its cold weather strategy — providing shelter for people in need.

The Salvation Army is open 24 hours to provide support for people in the cold. By Wednesday morning, the shelter reached maximum capacity and was in overflow, putting extra cots in the dining area.

Antarctic, Greenland melt will really mess up Canadian weather, study findsGreenland and Antarctica are a long distance away, but new research suggests the accelerating disappearance of their ice caps will have a major — and underestimated — effect on extreme weather in Canada.
"We're underestimating the impact of the ice sheets on the climate system," said Natalya Gomez, a professor at McGill University and co-author of a paper published Wednesday in the journal Nature.
The frozen caps covering Antarctica and Greenland are the two largest such bodies in the world. Between them they hold almost 30 million cubic kilometres of ice.
Climate change has been melting both at an increasing rate. Some say the Antarctic's western sheet may have already passed a tipping point of irreversible loss.

Ontario: Major winter storm takes aim at the province
Sunday, February 10, 2019, 9:36 AM -   A light dusting of snow Sunday night into Monday morning will be a small tee-up to a larger and more impactful system that is set to bring heavy snow, rain, and ice pellets to parts of the province, impacting both of Tuesday's commutes. More on that system, below.

Winter weather to hit Maritimes mid-week

Snow, wind and ice pellets are set to wallop the Maritimes this week, with Environment Canada issuing a special weather statement for the region on Monday.

The federal agency says a low-pressure system is set to bring milder temperatures, strong winds and a mixed bag of precipitation to the Maritimes.

Snow is forecast to begin falling Tuesday night in the southwest portions of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick before spreading northeastward in both provinces on Wednesday.

There is a chance that the snow will change to ice pellets and freezing rain by Wednesday afternoon and Environment Canada says that travel may be difficult due to blowing snow.

Here's what's cancelled in London today due to weather

Environment Canada says the day will start with snow and end with rain, causing dangerous driving conditions

Worsening weather conditions Tuesday morning have closed local schools and shut down Western University and Fanshawe College campuses for the day.

Schools and offices at both the Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB) and the London District Catholic School Board (LDCSB) are cancelled for the day, according to tweets from both boards.

Buses to both boards are also cancelled for the day, according to Southwestern Ontario Student Transportation Services.

At Western University, all classes and campus activities for the day have been cancelled and scheduled tests will be postponed. In an online statement, the university said campus libraries, the student recreation centre and food services are also shut down for the day.

All Fanshawe College locations are also closed, the college said in a tweet.

The downtown and Westmount Montessori Academy locations are closed today.

A number of flights out of the London International Airport have also been cancelled.

All library locations in Middlesex County are closed, and books can either be renewed online or returned tomorrow, the library said in a tweet.
Snow, freezing rain, plain old rain in forecast

A special weather statement is in effect for London-Middlesex, according to Environment Canada. Snow falling in southwestern Ontario is expected to change into ice pellets, before changing to freezing rain and finally to rain later Tuesday afternoon.

Strong winds are also expected, with gusts up to 70 km/h persisting for much of the day.

Roads, parking lots and sidewalks may become slippery, and the weather agency advises travellers to be cautious and to adjust their driving to weather conditions.

Accumulation of ice may also cause tree branches to break and utility shortages to happen, Environment Canada said.

More than 30 weather records (both cold and snowfall) were broken this week in regions across British Columbia, said meteorologist Carmen Hartt of Environment Canada.That pattern that will likely continue for the rest of February, said Hartt.

Parts of Vancouver, B.C. were hit by nearly 40 cm (16 inches) of snow Tuesday afternoon — with more on the way. (There is now a snowfall warning in effect.)

A series of storms this week buried the region in three times the usual amount of snow for the entire month of February in just three days.

The snowiest February on record in Vancouver came 69 years ago, in 1949, when the city saw 60.7 cm (2 ft) of snow.

Severe winter weather hammers much of Canada
Adam van der Zwan, Annie Rueter and Mira Miller
Toronto and Vancouver
Published February 12, 2019

Crews work to keep aprons and runways clear of snow during a building two-day storm at Pearson International Airport in Mississauga, Ont. on Feb. 12, 2019.

Most of Canada was walloped Tuesday by severe winter weather ranging from an extreme freeze in Alberta to an ice storm blasting its way through Southern Ontario.

Strong winds roared at up to 80 km an hour in the Greater Toronto Area during the morning, before the city was hit with up to 20 cm of snow, rain and ice pellets by evening. Traffic throughout the city was stalled, visibility was reduced and airport flights delayed or cancelled.

“There were absolutely no cars on Queen’s Quay,” city resident Scot Milroy said. He was stuck in his downtown condominium babysitting his own children, as well as about 30 others in his building’s party room after schools were closed for the day.

Several winter storms have already swept the city this season. In January, Toronto saw around 63 cm of snow, compared with around 5 cm in December. Gerald Cheng, a meteorologist from Environment Canada, said this winter seems unusually difficult because the extreme weather began late, compared with storms last year that began in December and ended much earlier in the season.

Mr. Cheng said Tuesday’s storms were caused by a “Colorado low," where the weather system formed, and scooped up moisture and warmth from the Gulf of Mexico before sweeping into Canada. This resulted in strong winds, snow, ice pellets and freezing rain.

The Toronto District School Board was among many that cancelled all classes and bus routes for the day, an unusual move for an organization that said it had not implemented across-the-board closings since 2011.

Other boards calling off school for the day included the Thames Valley District School Board, the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board and boards in Peel Region and the Waterloo area.

In addition to the schools closing, Toronto’s libraries and recreation centres were shuttered, and all classes were cancelled at all of the GTA’s universities and colleges. Mark Mills, a supervisor with the City of Toronto’s Transportation Services, said the city had staff “working around the clock” to make sure roadways were salted and cleared.

Small power outages hit neighbourhoods in Scarborough, North York and Etobicoke, where there are “large, mature trees that have the ability to [fall] down and hit the wires,” said Tori Gass, spokeswoman for Toronto Hydro.

Special weather statement warns of 'wintry mix' for South Coast

Wet snow, freezing rain, and slush — it's all coming for us
CBC News · Posted: Feb 13, 2019 6:49 PM PT | Last Updated: 11 hours ago
The statement warns that rising temperaturs and rain Thursday night and Friday may cause increased snow melt, leading to slushy roadways and poor drainage. (Submitted by Lillian Patey)

We're not in the clear yet.

On Wednesday afternoon, Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Metro Vancouver, warning of a "wintry mix with the next storm Thursday and Friday."

The statement applies to the City of Vancouver including Burnaby and New Westminster, as well as Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Surrey, Langley, Richmond, Delta, and the North Shore, including North Vancouver and West Vancouver.

Here's a taste of what we can expect:

    Wet snow is likely to begin over the South Coast Thursday afternoon or evening, with Howe Sound, the Sunshine Coast, and eastern and inland Vancouver Island seeing five to 15 centimetres of snow by Friday morning.
    Precipitation is expected to change to rain over parts of Metro Vancouver, Greater Victoria, and the southern Gulf Islands as warmer air moves in.
    Freezing rain might also occur over parts of Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, and Howe Sound.

The statement warns that rising temperatures and rain Thursday night and Friday may cause increased snow melt, leading to slushy roadways and poor drainage.

Good luck everyone.

Environment Canada launches its own weather app
OTTAWA — Environment Canada is going mobile.

The federal agency launched its first weather app for iPhone and Android this week, including a new high-resolution radar option so amateur meteorologists can guess exactly when the next rain storm or blizzard is going to hit their backyard.

WeatherCAN is free, can be operated in English or French, and includes Indigenous symbols for northern locations.
