Good morning and welcome to a new work week. 

Hopefully the nasty weather throughout the GTA didn't put a damper on your weekend plans. Various parts of the region saw alternating snow and freezing drizzle Sunday. City crews are still out clearing side streets and remaining sidewalks, though major routes and arterial roads are all clear. 

On Sunday afternoon, Toronto's medical officer of health issued another cold weather alert for the city that will remain in place indefinitely. Temperatures will hover around -13 C for most of the morning, but with wind chill it will feel as cold as -21. A high of -6 C is expected on the day, so bundle up. 

Temperatures will drop considerably later in the week, with lows of -19 C and -22 C expected on Thursday and Friday. The GTA could see some light flurries begin tonight and overnight, though the sun should have a cameo appearance throughout much of Tuesday.
