A bit of a chill this morning – the furnace said hello in the early morning. The weather dog came in from his morning patrol and his belly is soaking wet so only the grass is wet. The Arctic influence is still very much in our area. But the warmer sunny day will be welcome relief from the punishing rain we have experienced. The river is rising modestly once again. It is looking clear fore a few days.
The cold weather wall remains 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. It shows no indication of moving anytime soon.
Our opening temperature starts at 7C(FL 7C) and will warm to 23C (FL 23C) in the afternoon and then down to a cool 12C (FL 12C) overnight. Slowly we warm, bit by bit….
The UV Index
The UV index is high today with sunny skies.
The Pollen Index is high. The bees will be loving this. Honey production should be strong.
The Bug Index
Who loves this weather? The bugs! The wet weather provides perfect breeding grounds for these wee raptors. Only not as much at Muskoka Highlands if the ever-present breeze is blowing!
The Fire index
The Fire Index is LOWin this wet clime. It reflects the impact of Hudson Bay weather dominating Quebec and Ontario. The forest rangers in our area can relax – no sign of dry bush anytime soon.
We are into a drying cycle for the next few days. The early morning fog is on the outside of your eyes and is a result of warmer ground water hitting the cool morning air. The rising sun will have this burned-off quickly. It will still be damp under foot today. Just too much rain for us to go to dry immediately.
Golf Hint fore today – watch your shot and pick a reference point where you think it stops. If you cannot find it after looking for 2 minutes, drop another add a stroke and play-on. Time looking for a golf ball adds to the time fore the round.
The view from here..
Waterproof golf shoes still needed until the recent deluge of rain exits the course. Slowly we dry…
