Toronto forecast/Environment Canada

While Toronto may avoid the worst of the storm’s snowfall, the forecast shows that there will be strong winds over the weekend that could create whiteout conditions. Wind gusts are expected to be between 50 and 70 km/h.

While that sets a chilly tone for the last weekend of winter, temperatures will begin feeling more spring-like next week. The beginning of the week is looking to be slightly above 0Ā°C! The forecast shows that rain will come in with the mild weather, so don’t forget your umbrella.
