Even though the city’s location on Lake Ontario’s shores ensures that winters here are warmer than in other parts of Canada, the season still sees quite severe weather, with January being the coldest winter month. Air temperature remains below zero, -10°C is not uncommon. Cold fronts bring freezing arctic winds, and being outside gets very uncomfortable.

The first heavy snowfall is seen already in mid-December, and 1 cm plus snow layer covers the ground for over two months. However, some of Toronto’s snowy winters are extended for as long as to mid-March.
