Welcome to July. And thanks to July for bringing July weather! This week is setting up to be a hot one. There is rain Orillia and south for a good part of the morning. But Muskoka will be sunny and hot. This will diminish the winged-raptor population to a livable level fore most of us. Thanks to GBay for blunting the storm that was headed our way yesterday.
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 18C(FL 18C) and will warm to 26C (FL 32C) in the afternoon and then down to 13C (FL 15C) overnight. It is going to be a hot week!
The UV Index
The UV index is HIGH from sunrise to sunset.
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 – soaking wet from an early dip. It must be warm outside!
The Bug Index
The Bug Index is high with the blackflies and the mosquitoes both in season. The warmer temps will eliminate more of them as we play bug free fore the most part. The breeze at Muskoka Highlands keeps most winged raptors away from you while you are golfing!
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.
A sunny day is a golf day. Congrats to Scott Parlett on his hole in one this weekend. And so many players remarking about the fun they had on their round!
The Webers index is predicting a busy week. Let Summer roll!!
Golf Hint fore today – Summer really starts to roll. We recognize that time is a key element fore the next 60 days of summer. Time to play, time for the dock – a delicate balance. We play 18 holes in 2.5 hours on a normal day. You can too. Play early. Play ready golf. Don’t spend more than 2 minutes looking fore that errant golf ball.
