The Overview

The top picture was taken January 12th, 2015. The one below was taken sometime in the 70s.

One major storm done, more to come later in the week. While the radars are clear til Wednesday, they do show a major front headed this way from the US mid-West later in the week. It is showing a mix of rain, freezing rain and snow. By the time it gets here, it will likely be snow. The temps will warm starting Wednesday so things are lining up for another load of snow this week. The good news – Equinox aka the First Day of Spring – is March 20th – so 60 days away!! Based on last year, we might be a bit longer to see true Spring-like conditions. But with these unpredictable weather patterns, time will be the judge.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -23C(FL -28C) and it will rise to -10C (FL-16C) in the afternoon and then drop to -19C (FL -21C) overnight. The big chill will leave soon.

There is a light breeze at 7kph from the NW fore most of the day. Later tomorrow, it will move to the SW and pick up the speed to 17kph This is ideal fore more snow off GBay, but the radar is seeing nothing before Wednesday.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:49AM, Sunset – 5:07PM. We have gained 122 seconds of daylight since Winter Solstice. Equinox – March 20th.

Road Report

Some plows are out throughout Ontario as the clean up from the last dump continues. They will likely take a good part of the day to get their job done.
