Today we get the sun without the blistering heat. The winds of change blew through from the northeast all day yesterday, with cooler air that made it a great afternoon and evening. The weather wall has flexed its muscles yesterday – never being too far away. A beautiful sunrise with a wonderful day ahead. Mother Nature has the air conditioning on this morning with close to single digit temps. And going back into the mid-20’s for the day will make this a day to be active outside. Hydration remains a key word to remember – and water is the best hydrator.
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 12C(FL 12C) and will warm to 24C (FL 24C) in the afternoon and then down to 13C (FL 13C) overnight. The cool is back.
The UV Index
The UV index is HIGH from sunrise to sunset.
The Pollen Index is high. The bees will be loving this. Honey production should be strong.
The Weather Dog (Replaces the Weather Stone!)
The weather dog came in from his morning patrol – damp belly = damp grass.
The Bug Index
The Bug Index is MEDIUM with the blackflies and the mosquitoes both being able to come back from their chill hiding spots. The warmer temps have not eliminated some of their breeding bases yet. The breeze at Muskoka Highlands keeps most winged raptors away from you while you are golfing!
The Fire index
The Fire Index is moving with the temps and absence of rain – going from low to MODERATE in this warm dry weather. The local hot zones on the map have re-appeared as it sure smelled like a forest fire on the winds yesterday afternoon. While we are still relatively damp at ground level, now is the time to adjust our use of outside fires to reflect this changing condition.
With the temperatures falling to these levels, and the humidity gone, it will be great to play golf at any time today. The roll has returned to Muskoka Highlands and the firm turf is giving a bit more yardage to those shots. Take lots of water with you – and we have more when you need it. Hats are back in style during the day.
Golf Hint fore today – Summer temps have moderated making it easy to play when you choose today. We recognize that time is a key element fore the next 57 days of summer. Time to play, time for the dock – a delicate balance. We play 18 holes in 2.5 hours on a normal day. If you have just a couple of hours, we have a 12 hole rate. Play early. Play ready golf. If your ball is likely lost, drop one close to where it went into the long stuff and play on (adding one extra stroke for the hole).
