Welcome to the Victoria Day weekend!
First off a big thanks to Mother Nature for the rain not really affecting the long weekend in cottage country!

Update/ The Bug Report is being published now so I’ve added it in with the photographs (below).

Still, the wet weather isn’t affecting cottagers. By the noon hour on Friday, traffic was almost at a dead stop on the 400. Sergeant Dave Woodford is with the Ontario Provincial Police and he said he saw traffic building even earlier than that. “Early this morning we’ve just seen trailer after trailer. A lot of boat trailers and drivers hauling the ATV’s behind their vehicles.”

Woodford warns that for those planning on getting in their boat, the water is still cold despite the recent hot weather. “Make sure that you have extra clothing on if you’re in your boat. Take extra caution out there because if anything happens and you go overboard or something like that, you don’t want to have hypothermia.”

Let’s get to the weather forecast shall we?

Short Term Weather Haliburton Highlands

Tonight– Friday look for cloudy skies with clear breaks. The low temperature will be an unseasonably warm  63°F.

Waking up Saturday morning expect it to be cloudy with sunny breaks with a temperature of 66°F. By Saturday afternoon temperatures climb to 77°F and there may be an isolated shower or two. Saturday evening brings variable cloudiness and a low of 73°F.

Only a trace of precipitation is expected in this 24-hour period.

Victoria Day & Long Term Weather Forecast

Sunday May 23, looks lovely with some cloudy periods and a comfortable temperature of 23°C.* Sunday night’s low will be 12°C.

On Monday, the 24th of May look for a mainly sunny day and more great temperatures for cottagers with a high of 26°C.  The low overnight is to be 13° C. The lakes should warm up quickly this year if this trend continues (which I hope it does!)

Tuesday will be a bright and sunny day, a precursor to some really warm weather coming up on Wednesday. The high temperature on Tuesday will be 27°F (!) and the low overnight 13°F.

Wednesday will be a sunny day and the temperature will be  28°C.  The overnight low will be 15°C. Love those cool cottage nights after a hot day!

Thursday will be mainly sunny with a high of 26°C and a low of 15°C overnight.

On Friday the mild trend continues with a high temperature of 24°C and an overnight low of 14°C.

There is no rain in the Sunday- Friday forecast!

Have a great week! Enjoy the webcam photos of Southern Ontario which I took in the early afternoon today. I love the sight of all those boats  docked in the water. 🙂

*Thought it was time to start using Celsius–at least throughout summer–as I’ve experienced and know how these temps feel (I’m not at Maple Lake, otherwise).
