Frostbite Advisory lifted for Ottawa
It’s a chilly start to 2019 in Ottawa.
Ottawa Public Health had issued a Frostbite Advisory for the capital overnight Tuesday into Wednesday but it has since been lifted. With the wind chill, it felt like -25 Wednesday morning.
Environment Canada’s forecast calls for a high of -12C today, but with the wind chill it will feel like -17 this afternoon.
Warmer temperatures are in the forecast for the weekend.
Public Health is reminding residents to wear a hat, gloves and mittens to prevent heat loss and protect ears and fingers from frostbite. You are also urged to wear clothes in layers.
