Toronto weather

Toronto's position on the Great Lakes helps to regulate its temperature, but it is still a true four-season city with cold winters and reasonably hot summers. Expect festive snow between December and March, and long days of sunshine in the summer months. The weather can drop quite a bit lower than the average in winter and heatwaves are common in the summer, so come prepared.
