Today will be wet. There is light rain in the area starting at sunrise. But the old adage of rain at 7 quit by 11 will not happen today. Instead, starting around 11 AM the rain will intensify and finally dissipate around 8PM. Fortunately most of the ground has some capacity to absorb this rain. Tomorrow is back to clear.
The cold weather vortex has moved west and is causing cooler weather in Western Canada. Our cooler air flows down from Hudson Bay meeting the warm air closer to us. The weather in the Atlantic has intensified around the tip of Greenland and remains close by contributing to the cooler temps today.
Our opening temperature starts at +19C(FL +19C) and will cool to +17C (FL +16C) in the afternoon and then down to +10C (FL +10C) overnight.
The UV Index
The UV index is low today thanks to heavy cloud cover bringing the rain.
The pollen Index is high – everything is in full bloom or past. The pollen is everywhere – just check the hood of your car! This rain will wash much of it down.
The Bug Index
Who loves this weather? The bugs! We need heat not only to dry the ground, but to deal with the hoards that are arriving. Only not as much at Muskoka Highlands if the ever-present breeze is blowing!
The course has dried to the point where the rain today will be a welcome dose of wet for the grass. It is unfortunate this rain could not come overnight!!
Golf Hint fore today – when you begin golf, tee up every shot until you get to the green. Make it easy to hit the ball, until you feel comfortable to start hitting some from the grass surface.

The greening of the course is speeding up…
