Toronto-area residents who haven’t jetted south in search of warmer climes are shivering through another day of bone-numbing cold.

Even though Environment Canada cancelled its wind chill warning, it remained bitterly cold Friday, as the wind chill hovered near -20 in the afternoon.

An extreme cold weather alert is still in effect in Toronto to increase services for the homeless.

In Toronto, Environment Canada predicted a high of -10 C on Friday afternoon with mainly sunny skies and light winds.

Flurries are expected overnight and Toronto will see about two centimetres of snow amid a dramatic warm-up Saturday, when the temperature rises to zero.

The bad news is the warm-up won't last long.

The temperature will drop again Sunday, with Environment Canada predicting a high of -7 C and a low of -13 C, along with a chance of flurries. After that, it will take a few more days before things finally warm up.

Normal temperatures for this time of year are highs of 2 C and lows of -6 C.
