Toronto - After one entire week of gloomy weather in the city, Torontonians garnered a respite from cloudy skies, rain and mild temperatures. On the unofficial start to summer, city slickers gathered outdoors and enjoyed our solar deity.
Mark Twain once said, “In the spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.” This quote couldn’t be more significant for the city of Toronto to describe our spring days so far this year.
Although Environment Canada projects that Toronto will experience high temperatures this summer, the city has not felt it this spring. Over the past seven days, Toronto has received only nine hours of sunshine. In the month May, we have only seen 80 hours of rays.
On late Friday afternoon, the sun came out, but it became quite nippy at around 6 p.m. However, Saturday was similar to what Toronto experienced last year at the same time; sunshine, blue skies and 25 degrees Celsius.
Unfortunately, the rest of the Victoria Day weekend doesn’t look bright. Clouds and rain are expected to cover the skies of Toronto, but it will still be relatively warm, according to the Weather Network.
The above video includes edited images and other unpublished photographs (accompanied by the great opera Italian tenor Enrico Caruso).
