Another warmish day ahead. The wee shower at 5AM will clear by 630AM and out comes the sun. While the temps are not yet at seasonal levels, we are getting weather that encourages us to be outside. The radar is starting to show a more normal weather flow with our weather coming from the West and moving to the East. This will bring GBay to our defense of severe weather as it will moderate strong fronts moving over the waters. We are headed into Summer temps this week which will herald a hot Canada-Day long weekend (and deal with the small winged raptors)! Do you have your red and white clothes out and ready to wear today?
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 17C(FL 17C) and will warm ever so slightly to 23C (FL 26C) in the afternoon and then down to 14C (FL 14C) overnight.
The UV Index
The UV index is medium today with partly sunny skies.
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 – Dry belly = Dry Grass – not enough rain to stick to him!
The Bug Index
The Bug Index is high with the blackflies and the mosquitoes both in season. These cooler temps will keep them hungry. The weather dog was back quickly from his morning patrol swatting at his head. Bad indication but it is still cool and damp in the ground. The breeze at Muskoka Highlands keeps most away from you while you are golfing! Maybe the heat coming later this week will deal with the smaller winged raptors.
The Fire index
The Fire Index is LOW in this cool dry weather. It reflects the impact of Hudson Bay weather dominating Quebec and Ontario. This will change as we get into normal summer temps. The forest rangers in our area can continue to relax – still no sign of dry bush anytime soon.
The early morning rain is a blessing to any golf course. The light does of rain will give the grass the water it needs. And it will not interrupt play starting early this morning. The week ahead will be great. The Webers index is predicting a busy week.
Golf Hint fore today – there is a video (showing in rotation in the more popular rooms in the clubhouse) that indicates the effect of alcohol on your game. It is not pretty. It shows the gradual slippage in distance and accuracy as the beers go down. Maybe time to save the drinks for the 19th hole and the dock. Beginners – feel free to tee-up every shot (you might not follow this to the tee on the green). Play ready golf.
