SPRING – March, April, May
Spring in Toronto stays cold in March and gets cool and comfortable closer to May. The temperatures can be pleasant on a sunny day, but you should plan for the weather to drop by 10 to 15 degrees at night. Although it’s a break from the intense winter weather, you’ll still need to bring a few warm layers that are easy to take on and off, like a sweatshirt
. If you’re visiting during the first half of spring, a light puffer jacket
will give you extra warmth. Stick to long pants
and closed-toe boots
this time of year, too.
Temperatures average between 35℉ and 60℉ (2℃ and 15℃) as it moves from early to late spring.
SUMMER – June, July, August
Summers in Toronto are warm and mostly sunny, and July is the hottest month of the year. Since it’s warm but there’s a chance of rain during your visit, you should pack a lightweight rain jacket. Shorts, jeans, sunglasses, and comfortable shoes are essentials in the summer. Short-sleeve shirts that you can layer with a denim jacket are perfect for the cooler evenings.
Temperatures average between 66℉ and 72℉ (19℃ and 22℃) in the summer but keep in mind that July can get up to a hot 80℉ (27℃).
FALL – September, October, November
Fall is a beautiful time of year in Toronto. The weather is cool and feels much colder in the evenings, dipping anywhere between 10 and 20 degrees when the sun goes down. Near the beginning of the fall season, you can wear t-shirts
mixed with light layers like a denim jacket
or fleece jacket
. You should add more winter-friendly clothes if you visit later in the fall, so think of long-sleeve shirts
, and a puffer jacket
Temperatures move from an average of 65℉ in September to 42℉ by the end of November (18℃ and 6℃).
WINTER – December, January, February
Compared to the rest of Canada, Toronto’s winters are considered mild. But for most out-of-town visitors, Toronto is very cold, getting down to negative temperatures some winter nights. The wind chill and snow this time of year can also add to the frigid conditions. A good face moisturizer will go a long way as you’re exposed to the cold elements. You’ll want to pack plenty of thick layers like long pants, wool socks, a heavy puffer jacket with a hood, or a thick peacoat with a sweatshirt underneath. Scarves, beanies, and gloves are also must-have accessories this time of year.
Temperatures average 32℉ in December and continue dropping to 26℉ in February (0℃ and -3℃).
