Traveling Through Canada: All You Need To Know About Toronto’s Climate
People planning trips to Canada for a vacation often make sure that Toronto is included on the list of cities that they plan to visit. That’s because it offers a wide range of activities, from sightseeing through to physical activities, and from some of the best food and drink options in the country through to shopping trips at high end stores and unique boutiques.
Located in the Canadian province of Ontario, Toronto is the province’s capital and a major metropolitan destination with a population of more than 2.7 million people. The city is on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario, and has the perfect blend of things to do in nature with a number of parks and other green spots mixed with urban sightseeing — including its city skyline with its skyscrapers, including the imposing CN Tower looming over all others.
If you’re thinking about making a trip to this great city, you might have concerns about the weather given Canada’s location. To some people the nation has the incorrect reputation of being icy cold year-round. That’s far from the truth. Instead, check out the guide below for everything you need to know about Toronto’s climate whatever the season.
• Toronto’s Seasons
As with many Western countries, you can experience all four seasons on a trip to Toronto depending on when you travel: spring, winter, fall and summer.
For comparison to other major cities in North America, you can expect the average temperature in Toronto to be slightly mildly than other locations in Canada including Montreal, but on average somewhat chillier than you might find in northern U.S. cities like Chicago.
Even though Canada as a country has a reputation as a colder destination than elsewhere, you might be surprised to know that many tourists still don’t pack adequate warm clothing to protect against low temperatures and the possibility of snow. Similarly, the summer can be much hotter and more humid than you’d expect, so pack light if you’re visiting at that time.
• Toronto’s highs and lows for temperature, rain and wind
To help with your travel planning, it’s useful to get a sense of the average temperature and some of the peak cold and warm times in Toronto.
February is the coldest month, averaging a high of 32°F and low of 20°F
July is the warmest month, averaging of a high of 81°F and low of 65°F
June and July are the rainiest months, with 2.5 inches of rainfall on average
January is the windiest month, with gusts of up to 14 miles per hour on average
• Visiting in fall
Temperatures during the three fall months will vary from the average high of 73°F in September through to a colder 60°F in October and a low of about 48°F in November.
Even though winter is the coldest season in Toronto, you’ll still want to pack some clothing designed for cold weather if you’re visiting in the fall — things like thick layered jackets in case of particularly cold snaps, and bring an umbrella in the event of any rain.
Many people like to visit during this season because it brings out the best of the natural beauty of Toronto and its surrounding areas. There are a handful of outdoors festivals that take place during this season, and other popular activities at this time include hiking.
• Visiting in winter
Even though winter is by far the coldest season in Toronto it’s far from freezing, and compared to other Canadian cities the temperatures can actually be relatively mild. At the start of the season in December you can expect an average temperature of 37°F through to a colder 21°F in January and dropping to a chilly 19°F in February, the last month of winter.
You’ll want to pick thick jackets that will protect against the cold because the powerful winds can make the winters seems even colder than they actually air. Expect to also see a lot of snow and ice, so it’s highly advisable to back sturdy boots that are designed for walking on cold, slippery surfaces. You might even get trapped indoors by a snowstorm, so be prepared for that.
Other essential clothing items to pack are those you would take to any cold climate, including hats, scarves, an umbrella in case of snow or rain, and gloves to fend off the low temperatures.
For those willing to brave the cold you’ll be treated with fun activities that include an annual Christmas market in the city, and ice skating on the rinks located around the city.
• Visiting in summer
Temperatures during the summer in Toronto will only, on average, get as low as 77°F in June, with a peak of 82°F in July and another beautifully warm 80°F in August.
If you’re a fan of swimming then summer can be an ideal time to visit Toronto, because the warmer temperatures can make the waters as warm as 70°F in July. And the city has a number of open-air pools that the public and tourists can use during the summer.
Expect high levels of humidity and hot temperatures if you come during this season. A major benefit of such nice weather is that a lot of organizations hold outdoors events including concerts, food festivals and more during this time.
Make sure your suitcase includes plenty of loose items designed for warm weather such as t-shirts and shorts, and the bright sun makes it a necessity to bring sunglasses. It can get a little colder at nighttime, but a thin jacket should be enough to keep you content.
• Visiting in spring
Milder than the summer months, you can expect this season to start with an average temperature of 43°F in March, through to 55°F in April and 68°F in May.
Snow, rain and thunderstorms are all possible in March and April but they tend to stop before May, so if you definitely want to avoid that kind of bad weather but still want to visit during the spring you should plan on making your trip to Toronto anytime in May.
For this season it’s recommended to bring a good mix of clothes designed for all extremes from hot to cold, though typically a couple layers and a jacket should be fine.
