The Overview

Winter remains stalled over Muskoka – with the warmer temps holding in our region. It will be a quiet day today and tomorrow fore weather. Not so much in Southern Ontario where a snow storm will pass across the northern edge of Lakes Ontario and Erie. We will get snow streamers chasing down Georgian Bay and into Toronto over the next 48 hours. Driving might be a challenge if you are headed South.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -1C(FL -3C) and it will stay at -1C (FL -4C) in the afternoon and then fall to -10C (FL -16C) overnight. Back into the snow zone.

The winds be a light breeze from the SE at around 4kph til late in the day when they will shift to the North picking up speed to 20kph. There are strong North winds to our West which are gradually pushing cold air back into the region over the next 12 hours.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:55AM, Sunset – 4:48PM. The day is lengthening by seconds daily – we have gained 61 seconds of daylight since Winter Solstice. The sun starts setting later – by 4 seconds every day on average. The sun will rise about the same time. Around Jan 8th, the rate of change will increase and the sun will rise earlier, and set later through til June. Yay!

Road Report

The Muskoka plows are resting until tomorrow afternoon when a major snow front will cruise in from the NW. Meanwhile, the plows are out in Southern Ontario due to a snow storm coming across the lower Great Lakes and dumping on Niagara and East of there through the day.

Course Update

Golf is infectious – even if Muskoka courses are closed for the next 96 days. But why wait for Spring. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating and starting to get some good play. The smiles and chatter all indicate a great time. Now is the time to start getting the swing in shape fore opening day, or before you might be headed South fore a golf trip. Call the clubhouse 7056461060 to book your time.

The next few days will bring the snow cover back up to regular depths and this will provide the protection from the cold temps we will start to experience.
