Weather in Toronto


While myths of polar bears and frozen footprints typically dominate ideas about Canadian weather, the climate in Toronto is, in actuality, quite mild. Lake Ontario, the central geographic element, is the tour de force that generates the comfortable climes. In general, the city experiences hot and hot and humid summers and cold, snowy winters (these are bearable compared to the likes of the northern territories).
Summer temperatures reach an average high of 79°F (26°C), while winters can get as cold as 16°F (-9°C). Rainfall is fairly high throughout the year. Autumn is considered the best time of year in Toronto, with mild days and cool nights.
