Warm temperatures in Toronto just set another record

It was another record breaking weekend in Toronto as temperatures touched 12.5 degrees Celsius yesterday at Pearson Airport. According to the CBC this breaks a previous high for the warmest February 20 set back in 1994.

Torontonians were pretty much giddy about being able to shed their winter coats, hats and scarves yesterday (today wasn't too shabby either). The Corner Place, a pub at Front and Jarvis, opened its patio for the occasion and it was overflowing with patrons basking in the unseasonal warmth and sunshine for most of the afternoon.

This weekend's record follows record breaking highs set earlier this winter including on February 3 when temperatures hit 15.5 Celsius making it the warmest February day in Toronto history.
