Switching from winter to summer wheel/tire in GTA?

Considering the weather forecast, I am thinking about switching from winter to summer wheel/tire setup this weekend.
What about the rest of you GTA drivers?

Right now is definitely too soon...middle April or late April.

Use the 7 degree Celsius rule...snow tires work best at 7 degree Celsius and below.

Keep an eye on local weather forecast for seasonal temperature.

Put my summers on today.

Earlier than normal but the 14 day forecast is looking fine, I couldn't wait any longer given the weather the past 2 weeks. On the off chance it snows I'll just stay home that day.

Mine are on - but snows are still in the garage close by just in case (I swap the wheels myself).

I am thinking that next couple of weeks the temperature looks like it's going to be over 7 deg and I don't want to waste my winter tires in this warm weather, so it's probably going to happen this weekend.
