The Overview

Lewie was back for a wee visit and loved to view his old haunts.
The winds from the North will keep the temps down for the next 2 days. There is the small chance of the odd streamer cruising through. Otherwise clear radar. Driving should be fine both on the roads and on the trails. The temps will edge back up on the weekend. We are edging towards Spring – this motion seconded by Wiarton Willie!

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -6C(-12C) and it will slide to -7C (FL-13C) in the afternoon and then slip to -18C (FL -25C) overnight. The North winds deliver the message from Mother Nature.
The winds start the day from the NW and will remain out of that direction til tomorrow night. They will start at 7kph and increase to 20kph during the day. This will drop the temps again til Friday.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:12AM, Sunset – 5:50PM. The sun now has enough strength to deliver warm even with cloud cover. Less than 20 days til equal day and night.

Road Report

Road report – The plows are out across the province. The 400 is good except for Honey Harbour to Barrie. This snowy section stretches across to Beaverton. Secondary routes are still showing as partly covered, and this will likely take a sunny day to clean up the residual snow on the roads that was left yesterday.

School Bus Status

School bus report – no delays at this point – but the it will be a cold wait fore the bus. Bundle up!

Snowmobile Report

Snowmobile Trail Update – OFSC is reporting 26316 km of open trails. This weather is reducing slightly the number of trails that are open.

Ski Report

The Ski Hills are starting to show the strain of operating in this changeable weather. The run count at some is decreasing while conditions are reportedly good on the open trails. Detailed info at onthesnow.ca/Ontario.

Course Update

There are 51 days til green grass. The PGA tour is in Mexico. If you are not, then you might be asking yourself – Is your game ready for the golf season? We know you are getting restless to golf and party. The golf bug bite will continue to itch and needs to be scratched. While getting warmer, it is still not warm enough to get outside and play. Nothing beats a few holes of golf with your family. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating and ready fore you and your foursome. Or bring 8 and play a two-person scramble with 4 teams. Times are full today so book now for tomorrow! It is time to start getting the swing in shape fore opening day, or before you might be headed South fore a golf trip. Call the clubhouse 7056461060 to book your time.

The grass will be glad it has its snow covering as this weather hits. We will look at the impact tomorrow when it is reasonable weather again!!
