RealWeatherWatch – Ontario Takes a Walk on the Mild Side

It’s pretty bad when you’re so used to writing about extreme or adverse weather conditions that you look for a way to spin the current mild weather in Ontario.

I spoke to Meteorologist Gina Ressler of the Weather Network about the current weather pattern, and what we can expect looking further into spring.
