The Overview

The major snow front has passed into Southern Ontario, and the road report tells the tale. The roads are snow covered for the most part so the battle back to black has begun. This front will stick around until later tomorrow, with sporadic breaks. This snow is good for the outdoor activities. But the sun is on the melt phase now, so it will be the annual tug of war to see how long the snow base lasts. Wiarton Willie has done his prediction – early Spring. Let’s see what happens!

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -8C(-12C) and it will rise to -4C (FL-9C) in the afternoon with some sunshine and then drop to -7C (FL -13C) overnight. These are snow-making temps.
The winds are out of the NE at 6kph and will gradually increase to 15kph into the night. They will swing to the NW tomorrow, keeping things chilly. While these winds are not coming off of Gbay, they are bringing snow from the SW today and tomorrow.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:31AM, Sunset – 5:32PM. 3 minutes more daylight every day, more sun, more melt. Even with the snow – there will be melt from hereon.
