Which climate do you prefer and why? What are some of the main differences in the weather between Montreal and Toronto?

Summers are similar but winters in Toronto are so much warmer, it's not a tough decision.

If really depends on whether you prefer -15C with snow, or -25C with LOTS of snow.

Like said, all other seasons are similar.

Montreal gets more snow during the winter than Toronto does, and it's colder than Toronto is.

Both cities are windy; I think Toronto is windier than Montreal is, but I haven't been to TO for several years.

Very humid summers, too.

As has been said, three seasons are virtually identical.

Montreal does have more days of persistent snow cover in winter, which is a negative for some, but a plus for winter sports enthusiasts.

So I take it most of you prefer Toronto's climate? Are there any positives about Montreal's weather over Toronto's other than the extra snow? If you even consider that a positive.

Default Hmmm?

From Toronto. Been to Montreal. I always here people say that Montreal is much colder. That being said if you not from Canada or the north US understand during the winter people can freeze to death even if major cities. Spring, Summer or Fall not a big deal. If you are coming in the winter don't mess around when there is a cold weather alert it is not a joke. Dress appropriately. Regarding my vote. Toronto all the way : )!

They both rather suck in the winter from a weather p.o.v.. Look at all the Montrealers and Torontonians in Cuba/Mexico/D.R/Florida in the winter and there's your proof that neither has bragging rights over the other re wintery weather.

Montrealer here. Toronto has the lake to make winters more mild, but not by much, and all the other seasons are effectively the same. Thus, Toronto objectively has better weather, even though we're talking about a slight difference here. Summers can be slightly hotter and muggier but I don't really see it as balancing things in Montreal's favour. Note that this is weather alone we're assessing here, nothing else about the cities.

Slightly hotter and muggier where? In Montreal or Toronto? I heard Montreal gets more humid and hot because of its location and urban island heat effect. Or were you implying Toronto gets slightly hotter?
