After a long cold winter, Victoria Day long weekend is finally here (bet you thought we'd never make it).

The holiday weekend marks the un-official start for many across the GTA and Ontario as thousands leave cities for a relaxing weekend in cottage country.

The forecast is a bit of a mixed bag this weekend.

If you are staying in the city, expect a mix of sun and cloud today with a high of 14 and an overnight low of 3. The temperature will stay slightly below seasonal at 17 degrees on Sunday. We are expecting a high of 19 on holiday Monday.

Those going to a cottage or pitching a tent somewhere in the province can expect cold nights.

Daytime highs in Parry Sound and Muskoka will be no higher than 9 today and remain below seasonal the rest of the weekend. Overnight lows will range from -1 to 5 degrees.

A frost advisory is in effect for a large part of southern Ontario, including cottage country, and areas of Halton, Peel, York and Durham regions. 

As they do every year, provincial police are also promising to step up enforcement on roads across Ontario, cracking down on impaired, aggressive, and distracted drivers, as well as those who don't buckle up.

Police will also be watching Ontario waterways.

If you are staying in the city, here is the full list of what's open and closed and activities going on inside and outside the city.

    The long weekend is a perfect time to drive your Ford around Lake Muskoka...Bracebridge, Port Carling, Gravenhurst, and Bala. Cottage country brought to you by Ford. And Ford wasn't subjected of those recalls.

      @Mark7 Rob asks that you keep an eye out for him...he'll be making more frequent appearances to keep him in the press and in he spotlight for the campaign. He'll be smiling, happy, sober, won't be giving little kids the finger, and no more rants until November. I'm planning to keep him front and centre in the press until the election, campaigning without actually being there.

      And I'll be keeping him out of Toronto until after the Pride depravity so the fags will vote for him too. He shares a common diet with the lesbos.

      Muskoka, we're here!

    Yet it is still kind of cold. Summer starts June 21.
    Any other sitings of that big guy that reeks havoc on our City; Fordzilla?

    Is Rob Ford on recall?
    Can they fix such a poor working dirty politician?

    Don't think so.
