Toronto set a rain record on Thursday and on Friday, the GTA was blanketed with snow.

On April 6, 27.8 millimetres of rain fell at Pearson International Airport. The rainfall broke a record for that date that has stood for more than 70 years. On April 6, 1942, 17.5 millimetres of rain fell at the airport.

But as the temperature fell overnight, it made for a sloppy morning commute on Friday, with snow north of Highway 7 and elsewhere. Two or three centimetres of snow are possible, especially north of the GTA, 680 NEWS meteorologist Jill Taylor said.

The weather will clear in the afternoon, CityNews weather specialist Frank Ferragine said, setting up for a nice weekend of sunshine and double-digit highs.
