The Overview

Is the weather starting a calm warm pattern? Not if you look at Calgary a few days ago. But our weather is coming from the South – pushing any notion of a similar storm to our West. Rain looks like it is trying to get here – we are happy if it sneaks in at night and is gone by morning. But rain is nowhere on our horizon over the next few days. It is the weather – this will change.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at 7C(FL 7C) in the winds. It will warm to 26C (FL 28C) in the afternoon and then cool to 12C (FL 12C) overnight. The humidex is making its way back onto the display.
Winds – a gentle flow of air at 6pkh from the south will continue to warm us today. There are a few “explosion points” for this one in GBay , Lake Huron and one in Lake Ontario.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 5:30AM, Sunset – 9:06PM. We have tilted the earth’s axis as far as it will go towards the sun this week. We will start retreating on the weekend. But there are lots of long sunny days ahead.

Allergy Index

The Allergy Index is VERY HIGH. Pollen will be lufting about in the breeze today. The grasses are kicking – and we know the poa is seeding on greens. The pine trees are still holding their yellow pollen – so be prepared for the yellow clouds floating about soon.
