The rain forecast yesterday arrived in the wee hours and left just less than ½ inch in the gauge – welcome relief at the right time. Thanks to Mother Nature for making this an overnight event. Today looks clear but with the high humidity and the 2 weather fronts colliding around us, there could be the odd burst of rain randomly located. The push from the north seems to be keeping the Gulf’s wet weather well to our south over the next couple of days. It could rain overnight tonight – Gbay will decide on this one. As with any weather, it could change, but it is looking very consistent across all radars. Hydration remains a key word to remember – and water is the best hydrator.
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 18C(FL18) and will warm to 28C (FL 35C) in the afternoon and then down to 19C (FL 20C) overnight. A bit warm so a bit unsettled…
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 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!
The Fire index
The Fire Index is HIGH in this hot dry weather. While the local hot zones on the map are creeping back onto the map. It is time to adjust our use of outside fires to reflect this changing condition.
The countryside is in full bloom with flowers of every description bursting forth along our fairways. We are in British Open condition – the bounces continue to amaze us. Break out the Guiness and toast Royal Port Rush! With their early tee times, you could easily catch the morning rounds and hit the links by noon. Just mention “The Open” and get a 10% discount on your golf rate (carts not included – golf is a walking sport in Ireland!). The cool mornings are great fore walking your round.
Golf Hint fore today – If you want to reflect golf in Ireland, try using Match Play as your format – hole won – move to the next tee. This speeds up the game. 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).
