While the Canadian climate might conjure images of polar bears and frozen footprints, the weather in Toronto is actually quite mild. Lake Ontario, the central geographic element, generates these comfortable climes.
The city generally experiences hot and humid summers and cold, snowy winters. These are bearable compared to the likes of the northern territories.
Summer temperatures reach an average high of 79°F (26°C), while winters can get as cold as 16°F (-9°C). Rainfall levels are fairly high throughout the year. Autumn is considered the best time of year in Toronto, with mild days and cool nights.
