The Overview

Today is relatively calm, with light winds and some hope of sun. An ill wind blows from the East. A wet wind blows from the SE. We will experience all 3 forms of wet overnight and into tomorrow morning as we start with snow at midnight, and move to freezing rain around 7AM and rain at 10AM then back to some random snow around noon. The roads are in good shape today, and the plows will be out tonight trying to keep then passable with this mixed weather front. The horizontal and vertical trails are in the best shape of the season and will be challenged with this change in weather. We are edging towards Spring – this motion seconded by Wiarton Willie!

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -9C(-9C) and it will stay at -5C (FL-8C) in the afternoon and then slip to -8C (FL -15C) overnight. A major front of mixed precip is arriving tonight from the SW.
The winds start the day from the NE in the 6kph range, swinging to the SE later in the day when they become ill winds blowing no good at 15kph through early Tuesday morning. A swirling motion centered around Manitoulin Island will then develop mid tomorrow morning and bring the winds to the West at close to 30kph, slowing to 15kph as we head into tomorrow evening.
