Even though it doesn't feel like it, the first day of spring is finally here.
The season officially starts at 12:57 pm ET today.
Many people have been counting down to that moment for a long time, after an unseasonably cold winter.
Environment Canada has been the bearer of bad news for months now.
"And I don't have any better news," says meteorologist Geoff Coulson.
He says the temperatures will remain below seasonal until at least mid-April.
"If there is any comfort to take in this, we do know that normal highs in the Toronto area in mid-April should be about 11 degrees," Coulson says. "So even if things are going to be a little bit colder than that, it would still mean hopefully daytime highs of about 7 or 8."
He says it's too early to predict what the summer will be like but, so far, some models show an average season, while others show the cooler-than-normal temperatures continuing.
