The Overview

UPDATE – major front moving through PS Muskoka early evening starting in the 7PM range in Parry Sound and into Muskoka fairly quickly thereafter. Done in about 2 hours – welcome rain relief. The high temps and humidity will remain fore today. If you are near Huntsville, expect an intense popup storm around 9AM! The weather trend is cooler air pushing the hot humid air out of the area this afternoon. Winds from the northwest are cooler. The collision fronts are south of Muskoka. Toronto will get heavy rain this afternoon and into this evening. And this will keep the attention of the radio broadcasters and of course our television people are all about Toronto – but we are not in Toronto. We are in Muskoka and our weather is different. Sunday looks mostly clear. Nice to not hear the volunteer fire crew sirens in Bracebridge, Gravenhurst and Muskoka Lakes fore a couple of days. They need the rest. Unpaid and unheralded, you have withstood a gruelling test – and are to be congratulated for your dedication and execution in difficult conditions. 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.

The Weather TopDress Dog (Replaces the Weather Stone!)

The weather dog came in from his morning patrol – damp belly = damp grass.

The Bug Index

The Bug Index is LOW with the mosquitoes still hanging in there. The deer flies are making their appearance – and so the onslaught continues. The breeze at Muskoka Highlands keeps most winged raptors away from you while you are golfing!

The Fire index

The Fire Index is HIGH in this hot dry weather. Amazingly, the province looks pretty wet and at little risk. It is still time to be careful with our use of outside fires to reflect this changeable condition.

Course Update

 

 

A shoutout to Milan Charron – 830PM 5 green repairs – a smile. Well done Champ!!

The Open is on early – great breakfast television from Ireland. Break out the Guiness and toast Royal Port Rush! With their early tee times, you could easily catch the morning rounds and hit the links by noon. Just mention “The Open” and get a 10% discount on your golf rate (carts not included – golf is a walking sport in Ireland!).  The cool mornings are great fore walking your round.

 

Golf Hint fore today – If you want to reflect golf in Ireland, try using Match Play as your format – hole won – move to the next tee. This speeds up the game. We play 18 holes in 2.5 hours on a normal day. If you have just a couple of hours, we have a 12 hole rate. Play early. Play ready golf. If your ball is likely lost, drop one close to where it went into the long stuff and play on (adding one extra stroke for the hole).
