The Overview

A light dusting of snow overnight is just warning of what is coming overnight. It will start to snow early tomorrow morning, and continue at a varied pace through Friday. The snow will come from the South this time with areas south of the Great Lakes getting rain more than snow. The Winter outdoor activities need this snow to keep their base intact. The snow will be heavy at times.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -11C(-17C) and it will rise to -8C (FL-11C) in the afternoon with some sunshine and then drop to -11C (FL -13C) overnight. Yesterday’s North winds brought Winter back to us.
The winds are out of the North at 10kph til around 4PM when they transition to the SE as a light breeze. This signals snow. Overnight they will move back to the NE and gradually increase to 15kph into the night. While these winds are not coming off of Gbay, they are bringing snow from the South tomorrow night.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:32AM, Sunset – 5:30PM. 3 minutes more daylight every day, more sun, more melt.
