The Overview

So the weather worm is making all the indications that it is turning fore the better. The warm front naturally carries moisture and as it bumps into the cool front in which we have lived fore the past while, there will be rain. It is looking like Saturday is going to be a wonderful summer-like day. This will be coupled with plant growth (Pollen release) and sunshine (UV precautions). The roads are getting a makeover in many places and this will congest traffic a bit. Let’s hope this trend continues into summer now.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at 2C(FL -0C) in sunshine. It will warm to 14C (FL 13C) in the afternoon and then cool to 7C (FL 5C) overnight. The warm cometh – along with the wet.
Winds – are finally out of the South. This warmer system will collide with our cooler system and create a rain front over the next 2 days. The wind will be in the 15kph range fore most of the day. But the northerlies are not done with us yet. They return late tomorrow with most of it a light breeze

Allergy Index

The Allergy Index is HIGH moving to VERY HIGH over the weekend. The warmer temps along with the rain will bring a green flush to the region. It is interesting to watch the progression of the plants from Low to High and back to Low as they pass through the budding stage.
