The birds are quieter this morning, and only the odd bullfrog is calling from the pond. A quieter morning. This might be in anticipation of a short shower between 7AM and 8AM – if GBay does not slow this progress, and there is every chance of this happening. We do see dark clouds to the northwest but they might not deliver any precip.
The Weather Network has released its Summer Forecast and it is a result of the cold weather wall in place going from Greenland, across northern Quebec and into Hudson Bay. Our cooler air continues to flow down from Hudson Bay meeting the warm air closer to us. This will give us unstable weather fore the summer months. But there will be lots of good times included – with some intense bursts coming through.
Our opening temperature starts at 13C(FL 13C) and will warm to 23C (FL 26C) in the afternoon and then down to 15C (FL 15C) overnight. 3 degrees of separation from normal….
The UV Index
The UV index is high today with sunny skies.
The Pollen Index is high. The bees will be loving this. Honey production should be strong.
The Bug Index
Who loves this weather? The bugs! The wet weather provides perfect breeding grounds for these wee raptors. Only not as much at Muskoka Highlands if the ever-present breeze is blowing!
The Fire index
The Fire Index is LOW in this wet clime. It reflects the impact of Hudson Bay weather dominating Quebec and Ontario. The forest rangers in our area can relax – no sign of dry bush anytime soon.
We continue in the drying cycle for the near future. The course is drying – you can tell from the power carts bringing up less spray and being cleaner by the day.
Golf Hint fore today – try using the range before your round. It loosens you up, and it gives your eyes a few training shots to get them coordinating your hands and club to make better contact on the first tee.
Did you know?
The best pictures I have, in my mind, are all of the young families headed to the range for the first time. New clubs, smiles of anticipation and nervous laughter when asked to not hit the cars on the highway about 400 yards away. All generations can play together. And if you would like to compete as a family on a fair basis, a handicap is just a click away. You can join your family and support the game with your Golf Ontario/Golf Canada memberships. We have them here fore you.
