We are getting to the end of January – and the end of our cold weather rope!! Georgian Bay needs to freeze to reduce the availability of moisture that Mother Nature needs to make snow that she will dump on Muskoka. With a snow squall warning in effect, be prepared for blizzard and white-out conditions if you are driving. The snow will be in the Parry Sound region this morning, moving into Muskoka later this afternoon. Take heart – this freeze is reaching into Florida, where the pools in the lanai might turn into hockey rinks if this persists!!

Our opening temperature starts at -20C (FL -29C) and will rise through the day getting to -16C (FL -25C) in the afternoon and down to -18C (FL -26C) overnight – cold by any standard.

The UV index will be off and on today as the snow makes random visits.

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 remain a 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.
