The Overview

We are in the final stages of this Polar Vortex invasion. The trend in temps is nicely warming. It will get windy and snowy in parts of PSM this morning. The trees have hibernated so the pollen is reduced. The plows remain on the roads for today – in the lee of GBay. Just another March day – in May!

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -4C(FL -9C) in sunshine. It will warm to 2C (FL -3C) in the afternoon and then cool to -2C (FL -6C) overnight. Still snow temps.
Winds – the steady flow of NW air continues to keep us cold. The winds are picking moisture from GBay bringing a snow front down through the western edge of PSM and on into Toronto. It will likely change to rain around non as it heads through Barrie.

Allergy Index

The Allergy Index is LOW. The trees are back into temporary hibernation at these temps so the pollen is held back – an upside to this chill? Thanks to Cedar, Juniper and hardwoods like Boxelder and Maple Alder fore budding and starting to exhaust your Spring pollen.
