What is the weather like?

In Toronto, Canada’s largest city and the capital of Ontario, the climate is continental, with very cold winters and warm summers. Although the city is located in the south of the country, winter is cold because the North American continent cools down a lot, and outbreaks of polar air masses are frequent. However, being that it is exposed to different types of air masses, jumps in temperature are frequent. Fog is fairly common at night and in the early morning, all year round, especially in rural areas around the city.
Here are the average temperatures at the Toronto Pearson Airport, in the south-west of the city. The districts overlooking the shores of the lake are a bit milder.
