Though Friday night’s clear skies bring with them the lowest temperature of the week, we can look forward to an extended thaw beginning Saturday afternoon which with have variable cloudiness, a high of 33°F, and 9 mph winds out of the southwest. Sunday, look for bright, sunny skies and a high of 44°F with lows dipping down to 19°F overnight.
Monday is expected to be mainly sunny again with a high of 44°F and overnight lows falling only to 23°F. On Tuesday, March 17, expect a mix of clouds with sunny breaks and the week’s “highest” high at 46°F with lows overnight yet again not at all severe at 24°F. Looking to Wednesday the warming trend will continue with a high of 44°F with a 60% chance of light rain. I believe that overnight Wednesday will be the first night in quite some time where the temperatures are forecasted to remain slightly above freezing at a low of 33°F. Thursday the 19th ushers in the first real drop in temperatures. Expect variable cloudiness, a high of only 28°F and a nighttime low of 19°F. For Friday, March 20 expect more variable cloudiness with a high of 30°F during the day and a nighttime low of 17°F. There is no precipitation in the forecast for either Thursday or Friday.
Here is the 14-day extended weather forecast:
Below are some webcam shots I took of various pretty spots by the water in south central Ontario. Depending on the spot you will notice degrees of ice melt. I’m assuming that the upcoming 4-day thaw should enhance the thaw even further. Should be fun to follow.
There’s the tell-tale melting near the center of Head Lake in Haliburton.
But at Lake Muscoka in Gravenhurst it looks like winter still has a firm grip.
The ice-melt is very apparent in Kincardine where the harbour is quickly reverting to it’s liquid state.
The Silver Lake Resort still looks like it has a ways to go before an expanse of water is on the vista.
