Today the weather here in the Chicago area went from rain to steely gray skies to thunderstorms and now we have heavy rain. With such delightful weather, <sarcasm> my thoughts of course, turned to wondering what the weather is like at Maple Lake in Ontario, Canada.
I was happy to see that this afternoon’s high in Haliburton County was about 75°F and it was not raining so I jumped ahead with the weather forecast and was slightly dismayed to see something not all that unusual. For meteorological reasons beyond my scope, Southern Ontario often gets “our” weather a day or two after we do.
Here is what you have to look forward to tonight and Wednesday:
Tonight (Tuesday) is mild and a pretty good night to stargaze with mainly clear skies. Wednesday starts out with variable cloudiness and a high of 66°F. However, by Wednesday afternoon it becomes cloudy with showers, which continue though Wednesday evening and right through Thursday. At least the temperatures remain mild.
I realize that it’s small consolation to say that the 14-day extended weather forecast looks very nice for next week. That’s a very good thing as right now it look like the weekend of June 20-21 at Maple Lake will be a complete washout. I really do feel badly for the weekenders and for cottage country businesses but I’m keeping good thoughts that the good week coming up will help warm up the lakes for swimming and dry things out somewhat.
Here is a look at some Southern Ontario scenes from today June 16, 2009.
