Weird April weather: start of spring was Toronto's snowiest month
Sun and warm weather on the way, CBC meteorologist Jay Scotland predicts
Spring, somehow, has been snowier than any of Toronto's winter months this year.
Some 20.3 centimetres of snow have already fallen in April, surpassing the snowiest month of the winter, February, when 17.8 centimetres fell. In December, Toronto got only 3.2 centimetres.
April typically gets less than five centimetres of snow in Toronto, but since the temperatures have been colder than normal the usual "spring showers" have been coming down as flurries.
Despite April's frosty start, a major warm-up is on its way.
CBC meteorologist Jay Scotland said a ridge of high pressure will help.
"We are about to turn the corner this weekend," Scotland said.
Expect "a very warm and dry stretch of sunny weather," punctuated by a high of 19 C under sunny skies on Sunday.
