Toronto is saying goodbye to winter with a few flurries.

Monday is the first day of spring (the new season began at 6:28:37 a.m.) and the above-zero temperatures came with a chance of snow.

There’s a high of 8 C in the forecast, 680 NEWS meteorologist Jill Taylor said, with a mix of sun and cloud.

There could be flurries in the west end of the GTA, Taylor said, but it will end by about 7:30 a.m.

After that, Monday will be increasingly cloudy with a chance of showers, CityNews weather specialist Frank Ferragine said.

Geez. when listening to interviews of people’s reaction to spring’s arrival, most mention how “tired” they are of winter… what winter? we’ve been so hot and wet (as opposed to snowy), we have not even had a real taste of winter. even last week’s storm that hit south and west of the lake and Eastern Ont. barely touched the rest of the GTA. Naw, Toronto does not get winter. I’ve been waiting for it since I got here in 1981. Give me 10-15 cm a week minimum with temps at -10 on hot days and -30 at night.
