Extreme Cold Temperatures Coming to Brampton

 

While we’ve dealt with a smattering of frigid days this winter, we’ve been very lucky for the most part—especially in light of our relatively mild January. 

That said, health authorities and cities surrounding Brampton (including Toronto and Mississauga) have issued extreme cold weather alerts.

Extreme cold weather alerts are typically issued when temperatures drop to -15 or colder (windchill factored in). Right now, temperatures sit at -4 (but they feel like -12). Tonight, it’ll feel like -18. 

Experts are advising residents to stay indoors as much as possible, dress appropriately (wear multiple layers and cover as much exposed skin as you can), drink warm fluids (but avoid alcohol or caffeine), reschedule any outdoor plans and bring all pets indoors if they are not inside already.

Stay warm, Brampton!
