Ce It's not yet spring, but the mercury rose to 15.1°C on Friday shortly before noon in Toronto, according to Environment Canada. This reading eclipses the record of 10.6°C, set on February 9 in 1938.

According to the seasonal norm, the maximum is -1.8°C at this time of year.

As of Friday afternoon, the City of Toronto website indicates that all but two of its rinks are closed.

Federal agency meteorologist Peter Kimbell explains that in Toronto, the temperature was 4.9°C above average in December, and 3.4°C in January and 5°C in February.

We saw mild temperatures all winter, probably explained by El Niño.
