The snow plows remain out in a stretch of Ontario that sits between Georgian Bay and Lake Ontario. It seems the proximity of these two large bodies of water keep this central Ontario region full of snow. There is a large snow front headed up from Chicago that will pick up moisture from Georgian Bay and leave it in its path to the north east. It will arrive in Muskoka late morning and will stay with us in some form for 24 hours. It will be intense at times, making travel tricky.

Our opening temperature starts at -23C (FL -23C) and will fall through the day getting to -16C (FL -24C) in the afternoon and down to -17C (FL -27C) overnight – good bye Polar Vortex – you can head on back north now.

The UV index will be off later this morning as the sun will be likely be out til the snow arrives.

The reflective index is strong as the remaining snow is one of the best mirrors for sunshine. Sunglasses will likely be needed today!!

The Pond Index is at Strong. As always, caution is needed on any frozen surface. You will have to be the Zamboni today to clear the outdoor rinks of these recurring snow falls.

Road report – the roads are good this morning in Muskoka. But the crews will be out on your return from work.

School Busses are RUNNING as of press time. For current info on the busses click here..

The Ski Resorts are wide open – more here. Tis the time to hit the slopes! Conditions vary by resort, and grooming will be key over the next while.

The snow mobile trails continue to open around the province. It looks like you can travel most of Ontario except the south west – so lots of running. The slush on lakes will start to surface as the weight of the snow pushes the ice down – be careful if running unfamiliar routes. Click here for more information on the status of registered trails.
