The city issued, Sunday night, yet another cold alert. And it's expected to get colder as the week goes on.

Enough already.

The Medical Officer of Health for Hamilton issued a cold weather alert effective Sunday night. Don't expect it to be lifted any time soon. The temperatures are expected to drop over the next few days and remain below season averages.

By Thursday the overnight low is expected to be -22 C.

A cold alert is issued when current or anticipated weather conditions are at or below -15 C or -20 C with the wind chill.

The city reminds members of the public that they can report the location of a person in need of shelter to the Salvation Army at 905-527-1444 Ext. 0.
