When do you think it'll be warm enough to dismount the winter tires?
There is now what I view as an 85% chance that if you even take them off now, your "all season's" will be fine in Toronto, despite the fact that they are only decent in typical conditions in 3 out of 4 seasons. But in this case, I see an 85% chance that you won't need winter tires.

But then again, I don't even know where you are located. If you are in or very near the city of Toronto, the above applies to you. If you are not, then you might need to wait a little longer.

Last year I made the mistake of swapping my tires in early April then we had a snow/ice storm a week or so later. It sucked.

If Hawaii and Las Vegas are getting snow and quite significant at that, I think we have a problem, Houston.

If it's a Corolla and beige, you're fine since they're electronically governed to go 80km/h MAX!

It was a Cadillac CTS-V and was almost undriveable on the performance all-season tires.

This Sunday's windstorm in Ontario sounds very concerning. 80-100+ km/h wind speeds. A lot of people are gonna need new roof shingles soon. I wish I can find a giant tarp I can put over my roof to protect them.

Was planning to go out Sunday. Will 100 km/h winds knock over a small car? Or a small person? Need to put a few bottles of water in backpack to keep me grounded?

People might get knocked over. But not cars. Empty tractor trailers can get blown over though. I would go in lock down though. Because any loose object can become a projectile. The same recommendations for hurricane will apply to this, which means no going outside during the peak of the storm.

When the remnants of the halloween hurricane many years ago came to Ontario, a person died. Last year 3 died from a storm that is the same or lesser than the one coming tomorrow. So yes, stay inside. Someone is likely to be killed tomorrow too.

Any chance of snow with that storm?
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
