The weather has changed – quickly. A 50% temperature drop will bring strong weather along with it – and this storm was no exception. There was a wind sheer that dropped through there and took some precious trees along with it. Then it proceeded down 6 fairway and proceeded to damage some houses there. There will be rain in North Muskoka but only heavy mist south of Port Sydney. The winds today will be in the 30kph range so it will certainly feel like Scotland here today. Come challenge the course in these winds. A true test of your game!
The Radar Never Lies!
Our opening temperature starts at 16C(FL 14C) in the damp. It will stay at 16C (FL 15C) in the afternoon and then cool to 11C (FL 9C) overnight. Wild things happen when the temperature drops by 50%. Winds – the South Easterlies have arrived. Warm moist air will be arriving from the Gulf of Mexico. The humidex will be rocking today!
Sunrise – 5:30AM, Sunset – 9:04PM. A blustery start to the day – but the sun just does not want to wake up any earlier!!
The Bug Report – they are strong – but likely in Kansas by now in this wind.
The Allergy Index is VERY HIGH. The honey bees are loving this time of year – it makes a car wash even more necessary with pollen covering everything outside. The wind will be carrying the pollen long distances today.
The UV index is HIGH despite the cloud cover. This wind will move the cloud cover later in the day.

A Special Day In A Wonderful Setting
Weddings are a special day for many people involved. Here at Muskoka Highlands, we reduce that stress with attention to every detail. But our distinguishing feature is our setting – both inside and out. The clubhouse is designed to hold about 85 guests and the picture shows how this can happen. For larger parties, we engage a tent professional to create a unique setting outside. Do you want to feel the warmth of a timber-frame clubhouse? Drop us an inquiry – firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond and we will work with you to make your day special.
