The frigid temperatures continued into Sunday morning, but are expected to rise after midnight to a relatively comfortable -11 C. For Monday, the weather agency is forecasting a high of 0 C and up to 5 C on Friday.
The city of Toronto issued an extreme cold weather alert Saturday, just the seventh so far this winter.
