It was extremely close, but last month was officially the warmest February in Toronto’s history.

According to Environment Canada, the offical average temperature for February’s 28 days was -0.2°C. That average just narrowly beat out both 2012 and 1998’s Feburarys, when the month’s average was calculated to be -0.3°C.

That’s right, a tenth of a degree was the difference.

Not only was the entire month of February the warmest in Toronto’s history, but one day in particular – February 23 – was the hottest single February day in the city’s history, reaching a blistering 17.7°C. 

Meanwhile, today is already on its way to becoming the warmest ever March 1 in Toronto. It’s currently 12°C in the city with Environment Canada forecasting a high of 16°C later this afternoon. (Of course, that doesn’t come without its own weird side effects.)

The previous March 1 record high on March 1 took place in 2000 when temperatures reached a very spring-like 13.2°C.

It looks like 2017 is on its way to setting a lot of records.
