The temperature is due to rise in Toronto after a snowy blast from Mother Nature on the weekend, but air travellers faced more delays at Pearson airport on Sunday due to weather issues elsewhere and an existing backlog of flights.
More than 100 flights for travellers heading to and from the eastern U.S., Quebec and other destinations were either delayed or cancelled because of a storm hitting south of the border. A similar number of cancellations had resulted at Pearson the day before because of snowfall on Saturday night.
