Over 50,000 fans from across the country flocked to the Rogers Centre in Toronto on Sunday to watch as the Toronto Argonauts defeated the Calgary Stampeders in a 35-22 victory.

It was the first time in 60 years that the Argos won the Grey Cup in front of their hometown crowd.

While die-hard fans would have showed up no matter the weather, conditions in the city were ideal for both the pre-game festivities and post-game celebrations. 

"The weather was really great," says The Weather Network's Lyndsay Morrison who was in the heart of the celebrations on Sunday. "It was a little cold, but if you had your winter jacket and your hat and your gloves, it was completely enjoyable." 

Fans can expect similar conditions for the victory parade on Tuesday, with a daytime high of 2°C forecast in Toronto.

How the weather affects the Grey Cup is a consideration each year and the CFL says they've seen a little bit of everything in its 100-year history.
