Environment Canada says Toronto will see a high of - 8C on Friday, and a low of - 12C, with the windchill making it feel as cold as - 28C in the morning. Most melted as soon as it hit the streets.

Tonight will be the coldest night of the season so far with low temperatures settling into the low single digits with sub-zero wind chills. However, with clearing skies into Thursday morning, temperatures will fall even quicker, setting the stage for risky wind chills.

Multiple winter weather advisories have been issued for counties in our area.

By Wednesday evening, bitterly cold temperatures and breezy winds combine to drop wind chill values to dangerously cold levels late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Black ice is possible tonight into early Friday.

"1-3" of accumulation is possible in valleys while closer to 2-5" in possible in mountains.

A Wind Chill Advisory is also in effect for a number of West River counties.

We top out at 29 degrees on Thursday, 41 on Friday and 42 on Sunday, then roll back into the mid-30s as we start up next week.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Precipitation may begin as rain or a rain/snow mix before changing to all snow this evening.

Snowfall may become heavier overnight for a few hours as lake enhanced bands of snow develop along a sharp cold front. Southeast winds 5 to 10 miles per hour. Southwest winds 5 to 15 miles per hour.

Crews in Madison have been plowing snow and spreading sand, but they said with the cold temperatures salt is not very effective. West winds 15 to 25 miles per hour.
