It seems our record-breaking day might be in danger of being missed altogether.
Despite getting our hopes up yesterday for a completely out of season afternoon of warmth, it seems that fog and rain have come to ruin the party.
However, a high of 13°C would still make today the warmest February 22 in Toronto since Environment Canada began collecting data nearly 80 years ago in 1938. The previous high for today was in 1981 when the temperature reached 11.8°C.
Tomorrow’s high of 16°C also has a chance of beating its previous high as well.
Record-breaking or not, one thing is for sure – this week in Toronto has felt like anything but the middle of winter.
Environment Canada’s full statement here:
Near zero visibility in fog is expected or occurring.
Dense fog is expected to continue until near noon in some locales.
Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility.
Fog advisories are issued when near zero visibilities in fog are expected or occurring.
