Default Ontario deep freeze won't last long



As the snow moves out, the deep freeze moves in. Ontario is in the grip of a weekend freeze that is making it feel like -27 C, with the wind chill.

The rain, freezing rain, and snow that swept across the province late Thursday and Friday has headed further east, but following behind was an arctic air mass that brought chilling temperatures from Windsor, to Toronto, to Ottawa, and all parts in between.

Predictions of the arrival of the first cold snap of 2012 prompted the City of Toronto to issue its first cold weather alert of the year, advising homeless people to seek shelter, and adding extra city services for those in need.

Friday got off to a terrible start with police reporting hundreds of accidents across Ontario, most of them minor fender-benders, though one fatal accident was reported near Peterborough.

Michael Bourne, 37, of Peterborough was killed when he lost control of his SUV on the icy road and collided head-on with a Hydro One pickup truck.

The cold from the Artic front has made it to Washington. Two days of snow off and on and in some areas accumulations up to 6".
