The Overview

The southerly flow of weather will bring Spring-like conditions to Parry Sound Muskoka over the next few days. There will be some snow overnight Tuesday. It will be wet and heavy, likely to melt quickly. The roads are back to black for the most part. The trails, both horizontal and vertical, are in good shape. Winter temps want back into our region on the weekend. Wiarton Willie’s forecast is now close to reality – is he right?

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -1C(-6C) and it will scoot up to +5C (FL+2C) in the afternoon and then slip to -7C (FL -10C). Too warm for snow today…
The 15km breeze will come from the South today until 10AM when it will swing to the West and remain there until very early tomorrow morning when it will swing back to the South fore the day.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 6:52AM, Sunset – 6:08PM. And the 6s carry us for the next few weeks! We are now in the final March to the 17th – equinox.

Road Report

Road report – there are pockets of plow activity – the southern GBay area and the Ottawa region. Otherwise the roads look pretty good. With rain forecast, it could mean tricky spots, but generally will mean wet roads. The next snow is not til late Tuesday so all roads should recover to black in the next 24 hours. Travel will be fine.

School Bus Status

School bus report – no weather cancellations at this point.

Snowmobile Report

Snowmobile Trail Update – OFSC is reporting 27277 km of open trails. The warmer temps will lighten the clothing requirement for today’s running. Maybe water-proof suits would help!

Ski Report

The Ski Hills are still in great shape with nearly all runs and lifts open. A little bit of Spring-like skiing today. The bases still look good which should carry them into Spring Break. Detailed info at onthesnow.ca/Ontario.

Course Update

There are 38 days til green grass. Golf is this close – the heart will be racing knowing green grass is around the weather corner. The rain today will knock-down the snow-pack and the sun will still heat through the cloud cover. The winds will be lifting the moisture formed in the melt to speed the shrinkage. Your clubs will know this and will want to hit a ball. Do you? Is your game ready for the golf season? We know you are getting restless to golf with your friends. The golf bug bite will continue to itch and needs to be scratched. While getting warmer, it is still not warm enough to get outside and play. Nothing beats a few holes of golf with your family. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating and ready fore you and your foursome. Or bring 8 and play a two-person scramble with 4 teams. Times are full today so book now for tomorrow! It is time to start getting the swing in shape fore opening day, or before you might be headed South fore a golf trip. Call the clubhouse 7056461060 to book your time.

The grass will be glad it has its snow covering in this chill. The melt has started to expose green grass. Old Man Winter got grumpy and decided to hide this grass – but this is only temporary.
