People are getting sick of Toronto's incessantly dreary spring weather
If there's one thing that has made life in seemingly endless pandemic lockdown feel even worse, it's the absolutely miserable weather that Toronto has been cursed with lately, which unfortunately isn't set to let up anytime soon.
The absolute worst part of Toronto geography is being north of two great lakes. We miss so much warm weather in April-May because of where we're located. 28C in Windsor tomorrow!— Kyle (Greg Gibson) (@BlueMetropolis) May 1, 2021
Though residents got a brief taste of some beautifully mild and sunny days in early April and even in March, things have been tragically chilly, wet, windy and overcast for the past few days, with only a few short-lived periods of sunlight attempting to poke through the dense cloud cover every so often.
the saying goes APRIL SHOWERS brings MAY FLOWERS.....i dont think toronto weather got that tho— vic (@ickkzz) May 2, 2021
And as people patiently wait for more of the population to get vaccinated and COVID-19 case counts and ICU admission numbers to fall so things can open up for a hopefully somewhat normal summer, the weather seems to be having a strong effect on many in the city and making us all feel a little less hopeful.
me: ahh i feel almost okay for once and the weather isn't terrible, maybe i can get a ride in— Cow (@criacow) May 4, 2021

It's hard to get out of bed, let alone look forward to summer — or anything at all — when it's as depressing as it is outside at the moment, and the consistent rain has made it difficult to get out of the house and enjoy the few things we are still able to do amid the present stay-at-home order, which started April 8 and won't end for another few weeks.
Toronto is soooo whack rn I’m actually so mad. HOW ABOUT SOME SUN?????— 😽 (@thatgirltaya) May 3, 2021
And that May 20 end date is only if the order isn't extended, as it already has been once now.
Hopefully by the time the order does end, there will at least be some nicer weather to enjoy.
Is this straight up the worst April-May weather in Toronto in recent history? It's cold, it's grey, it's rainy. Can't wait for that 11 degrees on Thursday. 🙃 pic.twitter.com/L5jUH1sccY— Ben 'One Shot Down'' Singer (@benFsinger) May 3, 2021
Until then, it seems that we're all just going to have to try our best not to let the gloomy skies and not-so-tropical temperatures get us down, as hard as it may be to want to get up and do normal human things.
Though it's slated to be cloudy with a chance of showers over the coming days, temperatures will at least be staying in the double digits — 12 C on Wednesday, 10 C on both Thursday and Friday, and 11 C on Saturday, though it will feel a degree or two colder than that throughout the week.
Just felt kinda bummed by the weather forecast and then realized I was listening to CFNY from Toronto. Sorry ‘bout that rain, TO folks. 😆— Sarah The-E-stands-for-Excellence Broadfoot (@sarahebroadfoot) May 2, 2021
According to the Weather Network's forecast for the city, showers will likely persist into next week, but at least Tuesday is set to be mainly sunny and 11 C.
Things will be worse for other parts of the province, such as Niagara, which may see some snowflakes along with frost and freeze conditions over the weekend.
