Flurries could make winter 3rd snowiest ahead of 1964-65, which saw 190.6 centimetres.


Leo (July 23 — Aug. 22)

You have made impressive progress lately. This has intensified your appetite for further growth. It appears that much more is possible than you first thought. Amazing things will happen if you give your heart and soul to the pursuit of major change.

Gemini (May 21 — June 21)

Something unfair has just occurred, leaving you pondering the merits of a heartfelt dream. Don't ruminate too much or too long. Your mood will quickly change once you realize that your problems are not nearly as bad as you fear. Proof will come.

Scorpio (Oct. 24 — Nov. 22)

Extreme mood swings must be avoided in this volatile cosmic climate. A bit of good news could lead to delusional optimism. Bad news might bring on a sense of doom and gloom. But a balanced viewpoint will pay you big dividends.

Pisces (Feb. 20 — March 20)

Don't feel frustrated if current circumstances are difficult. Within a short while, there will be a real chance to alter your direction. Remain in a state of readiness but appreciate the opportunities that you have.

Snow forecast for today promises to snatch third place for the current winter in Toronto's snowfall record book.

With a light dusting early yesterday, total accumulation for this winter hit 189 centimetres, said senior Environment Canada climatologist David Phillips.

That locked in fourth place – ahead of the 188.9 centimetres in 1971-72.

A further 5 centimetres in today's forecast would move the current winter into third place, ahead of 1964-65, which saw 190.6 centimetres.

"(Tuesday) we will get the bronze medal," Phillips said, "and we'll be aiming for the silver."

Currently holding second place is 1949-50 with 196.4 centimetres.

The snowiest winter on record, since measurements began at Pearson airport in 1937, is that of 1938-39 with 207.4 centimetres – "the gold measure," Phillips said.

That means another 18-plus centimetres of snow must fall on Toronto if this winter is to seize top spot.
