I'm planning on visiting Toronto sometime in April and was wondering how the weather is around that time of year. Is it still cold and would it be better to wait until the summer?

Also, will I need a passport to come into Canada or will a driver's license with birth certificate suffice? Thanks

Weather in April is somewhat unpredictable.

It feels like we have a 90% chance of staying above freezing in early April, at least in the afternoon. If it snows (that's rare) after the first week of April, expect the ground to be warm enough that the flakes melt on contact. Occaisionally we've had deep slush in April. If you want spring weather and have to plan a trip in advance, I highly recommend you come no sooner than April 15th.

A colder than normal late April is still typically above 45 F just about every day with the absolute coldest mornings a light frost might be possible. Basically expect days from low 40's to high 50's.

Normal late April is between the high 40's to mid 60's F, a mix of sunny days and cloudy days, sprinkled with at least one sunny summer-like afternoon anywhere between 70-85 F. (but no mugginess)

A warmer than normal late April IS summer, with afternoons from mid 60's to mid 80's and a slight chance of the odd day hitting 90 F. Still too early for muggy weather though, so expect only low to moderate humidity levels.

*Obviously our April's can be somewhere in between one of those categories but I gave some examples that are hopefully helpful.

Ok, I'll plan my trip for the end of April. Hopefully I'll get lucky and the weather will be between 60-80. Thanks for the response!

If you're flying in, you may get in without a passport, but DHS won't let you back into the States without one. Vehicles are still allowed to only have DL.

I'll be driving in, I'm only about 4 hours or so away which isn't too bad. I was confused since I heard so many different stories about the passport issue, but I'm glad that is one thing I don't have to worry about at the moment.

... as long as you also have your birth certificate.

Question weather in toronto

I have lived in Toronto for 26 years, and from May to October I feel fine because there is plenty of sunshine, but now have made the big move to Florida for the winter, leaving myhusband there working, although all my children are indepedent now and on their own. My husband is great about it, I just feel so gloomy with the sunshine. I s anyone else is my position, and do you have any encouraging works about the cloudiness in Toronto for the winter and how you deal with it?

You felt gloomy in Toronto in winter because of lack of sun, and now you feel gloomy in Florida with sun?

Hard to see where your "gloominess" is related to Toronto's winter.
