Toronto just crushed a February high temperature record
Saturday's high of 11.6 C beat a February high temperature record set back in 2011
With Saturday's high of 11.6 C, Toronto just crushed a February high temperature record set back in 2011.
The previous record-setting temperature for Feb. 18 was 10.8 C at Pearson International Airport.
Trudy Kidd, a meterologist with Environment Canada, says that warm air coming from the southern U.S. is causing these extra-high temperatures.
She says the record high tomorrow is 12.5 C, set back in 1994 — and we could potentially beat that too.
But while Toronto residents were making the most of the spring-like weather on Saturday, Kidd says it won't last. She expects a return to seasonal temperatures in March after a couple warm weeks.
"This is definitely a tease for the spring... I think this is kind of a treat," she says.
