Summer reigns, but there is no summer rain for a while yet. There is no rain on the radar through Friday. This cooler summer weather is just fine. It is livable, workable and playable. Golfers are loving this cooler clime. Boaters – not so much as the lake was pretty quiet last night on a wee patrol for dinner. We are headed back up the heat roller-coaster as we had towards the weekend – hot and humid on its way back for another visit.
For interest – the main picture was taken in 2012 – showing that we are not that dry yet….
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 12C(FL12) and will warm to 23C (FL 26C) in the afternoon and then down to 16C (FL 16C) overnight. Where was this weather in May and June!
You are only 20 minutes away with Porter Airlines!
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 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!
A quick memory from April of this year – this is where we started – you will be amazed where we have come – and where will go with our greens. Mother
Nature is a cruel partner at times!!
Cooler weather means more walkable golf. And now is the time to play. The course is in full bloom, and the greens get better every day. The bounces and rolls are back and that short drive in June is now an incredible shot when it finally stops. Our neighbours to the north, the Partridge Family, are hosting their final Artful Garden event. Might be time fore a visit before/after your round.
Golf Hint fore today – The bottleneck on a golf course needs to be only the first tee. If you wait 9 minutes to hit, the foursome ahead of you will be clear of the green by the time you are at your second shot. If impatience wins, it will be a slow frustrating round. 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).
