February 14, 2020
Oakville Burlington Milton News

An Extreme Cold Warning is in effect for Halton Hills and Milton.

According to Environment Canada, wind chills could push the temperature near minus-30 Friday morning.

A Cold Warning has been issued by the Halton Region Health Department with temperatures are expected to drop to minus-15 the night of Valentine’s Day with a chance of flurries Saturday.

"Exposure to cold weather can increase your risk of cold-related injuries, including frostbite and hypothermia," said the regional health department. "These injuries can result in severe health consequences."

The Cold Warning is in effect until temperatures rise above -15 degrees Celsius or weather conditions improve and the risks involved with prolonged exposure are reduced.


Happy Valentine's Day :-*

Chilly winds prompt London’s first Cold Weather Alert of the 2020 season: MLHU

The temperature is set to take a dramatic turn, prompting the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU) to issue its first Cold Weather Alert of the 2020 winter season.

Environment Canada calls for an overnight low of -15 C with wind gusting between 30 and 50 km/h Thursday evening.

The alert will remain in effect until Saturday morning, as windchill values on Friday are expected to reach -22 C in the morning and -14 C overnight.

Randy Walker, the Public Health Inspector with the Middlesex-London Health Unit, says this year’s winter has experienced extreme changes over short durations.

“We get wet, warm, almost spring-like weather, and then within 24 hours, there is up to a 30 degree change in temperatures,” he said.

Walker advised the public to dress warmly and cover exposed skin if spending time outside Thursday evening in order to reduce the risk of hypothermia and frostbite.

The MLHU says symptoms of frostbite include skin turning red, blue or in later stages, grayish-white. It often causes pain, numbness and stiffness, especially in the fingers, toes, ears and nose.

Those who suspect frostbite are recommended to warm the affected area by placing it next to warmer skin or by immersing in warm water.

Hypothermia is another concern for a cold night like Thursday’s.

The health unit says it happens when a person’s internal body temperature drops below normal.

Symptoms can include pale skin, drowsiness, confusion and hallucinations.

The MLHU advises the public to contact London CAReS at 519-667-2273 if you see someone outdoors and in distress due to the cold.

Canada’s Spring Weather Predictions Just Came Out
It's going to be a wet one.
Stephanie Hilash2 days ago
Updated on February 13 @ 05:00 PM

It’s time to start planning your spring, Canada. We know, there is still snow on the ground in some areas and more in the forecast for others but guess what, Canada’s 2020 spring forecast is out. In typical Canadian style, Mother Nature couldn’t decide on one standard forecast and the upcoming weather is diverse. Needless to say, some provinces have it worse than others.

Don’t lie. You went crazy for the winter forecast when the Farmers Almanac released it.

Well, guess what, we are back with the spring forecast for all of Canada.

AccuWeather just released the forecast and we hate to say it but, some parts of the country are going to get pretty soggy.

The changing of seasons will prompt  wet weather patterns for millions across Quebec and Ontario and because of this, there is an elevated flood risk.

Guess it's time for rubber boots.

Each region is going to be different so bear with us while we break it down for you.

Regardless of if your area is going to have a warm or chilly spring, just be thankful that winter is ending and the first day of spring is almost here.

Listen closely as you hear all of Canada collectively cheer. We know, it's been a tough winter.
Ontario & Quebec

From Toronto to Montreal, these Canadians will be swapping out their winter boots for rubber boots as there will be rainy weather this spring.

While it will be a wet spring, there is still a chance of storms to unload some snow over the region, especially in March.

So don't burry that winter coat too far in the closet.

Based on the current status, AccuWeather is calling for a flooding risk through the St. Lawrence Valley region.

The areas with the greatest flood risks are those near the shores of the Great Lakes.

But it’s not all wet. There will be a good spring ski season in Quebec, so take advantage of the slopes while you can.
Newfoundland & Labrador

Bad news. Winter is going to stay with you for a little bit longer.

Much of the area will remain in the icy grips of Old Man Winter, but don’t get your hopes down. Warm weather will come eventually. It always does.
Canadian Prairies

This winter was brutally cold for the prairies. Some areas of Alberta were even the coldest places on the planet this year.

Overall, the possibility of lengthy cold spells remains low according to AccuWeather.

A dry and mild season is predicted for much of the region including Winnipeg, Regina, and Calgary.

This could cause some concerns for the farmers' growing season, however.

Even though AccuWeather is calling for a dry pattern, Manitoba is still facing a flood risk.

“There is a moderate risk of major spring flooding along the Red River Valley in Manitoba later this spring as there is a higher-than-normal amount of water frozen up in the underlying soil,“ the site said.
British Columbia & the Canadian Rockies

The bulk of the rain and snow will fall over northern B.C. and the northern Canadian Rockies over the next little bit.

Ski resorts will continue to benefit from this so hit up those resorts while you can.

The abundance of snow this year had every snowboarder and skier everywhere jumping for joy, but the dense snowpack could cause a problem.

There is a risk of river and stream flooding in the lower elevations of Alberta and B.C. during late spring.

This may be extended through to the end of spring in northern areas throughout April and into May.

All and all, it’s going to be a pretty wet spring for most of Canada with some places being a little more moist than others.

But after the winter we all had, that’s to be expected.

Let’s just be thankful warmer days are on the horizon.

Winter weather system with snow, rain hits Hamilton during Tuesday morning commute

Canada’s weather agency has issued a winter weather travel advisory for Tuesday morning.

Environment Canada says snow mixed in with a bit of light freezing rain will hit most of Southern Ontario, with snowfall amounts in the four- to eight-centimetre range expected.

Rain and drizzle will follow Tuesday afternoon with a high of 5 C.

Expect poor winter driving conditions from accumulating snow, which will remain most of the day.

The snowfall forced two schools in the Hamilton area to close Tuesday, Providence Christian School and Rehoboth Christian School.

More showers or flurries are expected on Tuesday night, with the low hitting -5 C overnight with a wind chill of -12.
