The weather, currently.

A Midwinter feel to an early Spring day

It's back!!!! A piece of the polar vortex is punching into the lower Great Lakes. It will very cold on Monday, with an early wind chill near -17°C as kids get ready for school. There will be some sunshine at least, with an overall mix of sun and clouds for the day. However, there is a chance of some lake effect flurries developing, but it will not be a widespread event for those of us in the city. The high -5°C will feel closer to -12°C, and this will likely be the coldest day of the month. You'll also feel that wind from the NW coming in at 20-40km/h. Monday night: scattered clouds with a low of -8°C feeling like -13°C.

SIDE NOTE: Traditional snow belt areas including Huron Perth, Grey Bruce, Barrie, and Waterloo will see intense snow squalls with 10-30cm by Monday evening.

Demonstrators marched on 500 cities around the world on March 25 in the Global Climate Strike, organized by Fridays For the Future— a movement founded by Greta Thunberg.

In 2018, the IPCC released a historic report, warning that the world had roughly twelve years left to prevent the worst effects of global warming. We’re down to eight years now.

World leaders have largely spent the last four years wasting time and carbon emissions are back on the rise after a sharp drop early in the pandemic. What has emerged since that fateful IPCC report is an unprecedented youth movement, demanding change.

This year’s theme was People Over Profit. "In 10 years these kids will be able to run for office," Sofia Palau, a Bay Area organizer told ABC 7. "If we can't make change here on the streets we will make change in congress in the future.” —Rebecca McCarthy
