Mother Nature is a tad bit confused in Toronto at the moment. The city tends to skip the majority of spring and goes head first into summer. This time around, we’re getting mixed signals. The weather has been fluctuating in temperature -- in the last month we have experienced shorts and flip-flop weather (25C and over), and lows that had me turning up the heater (below 5C). Toronto seems to be back on the uphill climb, though. The last weekend has been sunny with steady spring temperatures (about 15C), so perhaps summer is on its way afterall.
Boy is it pretty.
Spring is in the air and green is everywhere. The tree-lined residential streets are canopied in soft pink and pale vanilla blossoms and the neatly manicured gardens are revealing seasonal bouquets of sweet peonies, tulips and bold irises.
Everyone has left behind the cold days of winter. Like the season, there’s a new leaf being turned in the city’s forever changing landscape with gardeners arranging delightful floral arrangements around nearly every corner.
The return of the cardinals, blue jays, and robins can be heard with their chirpy songs that echo against the din of city life.
Most people are seen with the layered look that is spring coats or sweater sets but of course there are the bolder types fronting shorts and sandals on the odd occasion.
Blessed in spring with a moderate lake effect from Lake Ontario, Toronto’s weather remains mild. Local weather offices have sometimes compared the city’s weather to that of Cannes and the French Riviera as it’s on the same latitude.
For the most part expect seasonal spring temperatures dipping from 7ºC / 45ºF up to 17ºC / 63ºF.
