The Overview

Mild weather is back and so is the snow – starting tonight around 6PM and ending tomorrow before 8AM. The wind patterns are odd, moving around the compass overnight and into tomorrow which means there is some disturbance we cannot see but we will feel. The winds will ultimately remain out of the south keeping it mild through the week until Fri/Sat when we get a wee blast of winter again. The snowmobile and ski trails are stronger so the winter activities continue. Wiarton Willie has done his prediction – early Spring. Let’s wait to check his accuracy!

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -16C(-22C), with a clear sky and full moon, and it will rise to -2C (FL-6C) in the afternoon with some sunshine and then drop to -3C (FL -7C) overnight. The jet stream has headed back North and the “warm” has returned.

The winds are shifting around this weekend. They will be lightly out of the South today in the10kph range. Tonight, they will bring a large snow front from the SW around 6PM and clear early Monday morning before sunrise. Tomorrow they get into a confused state with a low pressure system over GBay causing a swirling effect which brings changeable directions through the day. They start out of the West, and move around the compass finally ending up out of the South overnight.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:27AM, Sunset – 5:36PM. The daylight continues to grow. Even with the snow – there will be melt from hereon. Another 30 days or so til equal day and night.

Road Report

Road report – The roads south of GBay are showing as partly or fully covered. The plows there are busy keeping them drivable in a safer fashion..
