Good morning and happy day-before-Friday. 

The brief reprieve from the cold that Wednesday offered has ended. Today will be sunny with a high of -9 C and a low of -12 C. Periods of light snow are expected to begin shortly after midnight. You can read the full Toronto forecast here.

Public transit is moving well. The TTC 127 Davenport bus is currently diverting in both directions due a water main break that is gushing water onto the road between Primrose and Greenlaw Avenues. Police have not said when they expect the closure to end, but it could be several hours. 

The Toronto District School Board revealed a list of 60 schools in nine different neighbourhoods that are now being reviewed for possible closure. Trustees, parents and community groups will conduct reviews of each location — comparing population, enrolment and utilization. The review could take as long as two years.

Liquidation sales at Target Canada locations are set to begin today. Everything from merchandise, to shelving to light fixtures will be up for grabs. Retail experts recommend being strategic about bargain hunting, as the longer you wait the cheaper your desired items will become. That is, of course, unless someone snaps them up before you. 

Nineteen mayors from cities across Canada are descending on Toronto today for the annual so-called Big City Mayor's Summit. Jobs, transit and funding from Ottawa will take the spotlight. Tonight CBC's Power & Politics is doing a special live show in Toronto.  They will be devoting two hours to cities and the challenges they face.  Watch it at 5 p.m. ET on CBC NN. You can also join the conversation online by using hashtag #pnpcbc. They're looking for smart questions for our guests about how to make cities more productive, prosperous and safe.  Ask your question by emailing politics@cbc.ca.
