Canada's weather is so unpredictable that it's hard to come up with any truly reliable conclusions on it. But it's still interesting to compare the data and statistics with what we actually experience through the seasons.
A report by CurrentResults.com analyzed the largest metropolitan areas in Canada and determined which ones had the hottest climates during the winter. They concluded with the following ten cities:
These cities were all found to have an average daily high temperature that is consistently above freezing during the winter. BC cities like Victoria, Vancouver, Abbotsford and Kelowna topped this list as expected; but what was quite surprising was Toronto's appearance on the list.
According to the report, the warmest places in the country's interior provinces are in Ontario, with Toronto, Windsor, and St. Catharines having a "consistently warmer winter climate than the rest."
Toronto also ranked 5th for 1) having the warmest winter nights, 2) having the fewest frozen days, and 3) having the fewest nights with chilly temperatures.
Maybe they've never actually spent a winter in Toronto...
