toronto record temperature

Toronto set a record high temperature today

With the sun shining today in Toronto, it's hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner. And, if you've been chained to your desk all afternoon, you may not have noticed that it sure is hot unusually warm outside.

Yes, as CityNews reports, temperatures at Toronto's Pearson Airport hit 14 C on this mid-December day. You won't be needing a parka until at least next weekend because the weather is expected to stay reasonably balmy for a little while longer.

Since Environment Canada hasn't weighed in yet, this record still remains unofficial. That said, the previous record of 13.2 C was set back in 1979 and we seem to have a bit of a cushion over that.

Enjoy it while it lasts, Toronto!
